Medical Marijuana and Guns Don’t Always Mix

Medical Marijuana and Guns Don't Always Mix

Medical marijuana and guns are not always a good mix. In many states, those who have a medical marijuana card will be denied purchasing a gun at a retail store.

A medical marijuana card may protect you from a misdemeanor pot arrest at the state level, but it flags gun buyers as unlawful users of a controlled substance at the federal level through their responses on the Firearms Transaction Record, also known as Form 4473, which under federal law must be filled out before the purchase can take place.

The form asks, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, or any other controlled substance?” Answering yes to the question can result in an automatic denial of your right to purchase a gun from a licensed dealer.

However, you may purchase guns from private dealers due to the “gun show loophole.” It allows the private sale of weapons between two citizens without filling out the federal ATF form.

In this article, Carlos Miller shares the conflicts of having a medical marijuana card and guns.
