Recently, I read an article about medical marijuana and the potential for legalization of recreational use of marijuana. Anyone with a medical marijuana card or using marijuana is prohibited from carrying firearms or ammunition.
Firearm buyers are asked, “Are you an illegal user or addict of marijuana or inhibitors, stimulants, narcotics, or other controlled substances?” They are warned that no matter what state law says, the use or possession of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. If you answer “yes”, the dealer will not be able to sell your firearms. If you answer “no” and you are an illegal user, you have just committed a crime. Having a valid medical marijuana card makes someone an illegal user under federal law.
Pennsylvania law presumes that possession of a medical marijuana card is an illegal user or addiction to a controlled substance. Therefore, it is also illegal to apply for, possess, or renew a state license to carry firearms.
Firearms dealers cannot sell firearms or ammunition if you suspect you are an illegal user. Also, you may not own ammunition or have a license to carry firearms.
