nder federal law, those who use marijuana, even with a doctor’s prescription, are legally prohibited from owning guns. That’s been the law for a while, but years after medical marijuana became a thing, we’ve seen no evidence that the law is actually needed. Those taking doctor-prescribed pot haven’t really been a danger to anyone.
That’s not overly surprising.
While I don’t ascribe to the idea that pot is some wonder drug, I do ascribe to the idea that people should be permitted to do all kinds of things I don’t necessarily approve of. This is one of those.
And no one should have to give up their gun rights to take advantage of a drug that might help them in a number of ways.
A new bill, the first marijuana bill of this Congress, seeks to change that.
