When a Washington medical marijuana patient recently applied for a Concealed Pistol License, surprisingly, he was denied by police.
Medical marijuana is legal under Washington state law, but the federal government won’t make an exception for that when it comes to getting a a gun.
Richland, WA police department sent the medical marijuana patient a letter stating that federal law prohibits anyone who uses a controlled substance from “shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition.”
When anyone applies for a concealed weapons permit , they have to follow these federal restrictions.
The woman who was sent this letter and wishes to remain anonymous made this statement….
“It is hard enough to be judged as a patient, but then to have my Second Amendment rights messed with, that was shocking and incredibly upsetting,” said the medical marijuana patient who was denied the gun license.
This patient says she uses the medical drug for chronic pain and uses products that don’t make her high, like CBD’s.
CBD or also known as ‘cannabidiol’ is one of at least 60 active cannabinoids in cannabis and act as a non-phsycotropic phytocannabinoid.
She says this license denial makes her feel like she’s being treated like a criminal and not a legal patient and citizen.
She says she hopes a compromise between the state and federal laws can be reached.
