Could Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Patients Lose Gun Rights?

The post Could Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Patients Lose Gun Rights? appeared first on High Times.

Medical marijuana patients are being discriminated against because of the medicine they use. You can be a blatant drunk and no one will come for your legally acquired guns. However, this isn’t the case for medical marijuana users in several states, including Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania medical marijuana patients lose gun rights once they become a part of the state’s program. A police spokesman has warned patients that there would be consequences for deciding to keep their guns after becoming enrolled for medical marijuana.

Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program

Under the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Act, patients with certain serious medical conditions are allowed to purchase and consume cannabis pills, concentrates, topicals, tinctures but no dry leaf or plant form. It’d be hard to argue that members of the Pennsylvania medical marijuana program were using their medicine recreationally when it only comes in more medicinal forms. Despite this, Pennsylvania patients are being expected to give up their rights as if they’re no longer responsible members of society.

Since marijuana is still a schedule I substance, medical marijuana users in Pennsylvania will still be violating federal law. As a result, gun rights are one of several civil rights you could lose by registering to be a medical marijuana patient.

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Patients Lose Gun Rights

If you’re a Pennsylvania resident enrolling in the medical marijuana program, firearm dealers will see that you’re a part of the program during your background check. At that point, they will be forced to turn you away. Even if that weren’t the case, firearm dealers are expected to deny sales to anyone they even suspect of consuming cannabis.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that even before the background check, customers must fill out a form from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The form asks about marijuana use. If you check off that you partake, the firearm dealer won’t be able to sell you a gun.

Ryan Tarkowski, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Police said the state’s authorities are “not in the business of offering legal advice, but it might be a good idea to contact an attorney about how best to dispose of their firearms.”

“If you’re a cardholder, you’ll be flagged,” he added.

Andrew Sacks, co-chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Medical Marijuana and Hemp Law Committee finds the firearm rule to be hypocritical.

“You can be an opioid addict, or buy a bottle of rum, drink it and go to a store and buy one,” he said. “But a person who is registered as a medical marijuana patient in Pennsylvania, and has a very small dosage of THC, can’t own a gun to protect themselves or hunt.”

Final Hit: Could Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Patients Lose Gun Rights?

It appears that any Pennsylvania medical marijuana patient that chooses to keep their firearm is putting themselves at risk. The irony is that alcoholics, opiate addict or even mental patients have their second amendment rights protected while medical patients and mild-mannered stoners are having their civil rights stripped away.

Doug Jones’ Hot Gay Son Faced Off With Homophobe Mike Pence At Dad’s Swearing-In Ceremony, And Twitter Is LIT!

We didn’t need a cherry on top of Doug Jones‘ historic Alabama senate win over accused pedophile Roy Moore. But we’ll take it!

If you didn’t know, Doug has a hot gay son named Carson (he’s a zookeeper, y’all, how great is that??) whom he actually brought with him to share in the moment of being sworn in to the United States Senate!

The best part was that, of course, it’s the Vice President’s duty to swear in senators, meaning well-known homophobe Mike Pence had to deal with Carson’s wordless, smoldering protest!

He’s just staring daggers at the VP, and it’s fabulous.

Carson himself shared the epic pic on his Instagram with the hashtag #nocaptionneeded, but Twitter def disagreed and gave the photo MANY delightful captions.

See some of the best (below)!

Where Are The Plows? Officials Say Conditions Make Clearing City Streets Difficult

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Where are the plows? It’s a question many people are asking.

Driving is treacherous, many city streets remain unplowed or waited hours to see them.

It was the kind of storm in which sanitation plows have a tough time catching a break.

As CBS2’s Marcia Kramer drove around Manhattan, she was surprised at the number of streets that have not been plowed.

The unplowed streets made it difficult for emergency vehicles to get through, and for drivers it was like a chorus of Paul Simon’s ‘Slip Slidin Away.’

“Last year was better, the plowing was better, the salting was better, but not today. Today is just not good,” Badu Cisse said.

“It’s very bad. Sometimes I have to put the traction off because I cannot get out,” Lucas Klusicvk said.

On street after street on the East Side of Manhattan drivers were doing something that looked like self-plowing — hoping that the weight of their cars would melt some of the snow.

It was especially bad outside Governor Cuomo’s office on Third Ave and 40th Street.

There was one consolation for Cuomo; city plows may have had a hard time reaching him, but owners of the building his office is located in had a small plow clearing his sidewalk so he could reach his car without much trouble.

“I get paid, I have no choice,” the plow operator said, “We have to keep up the building.”

Cuomo explained why this storm made plowing harder.

“The wind compounds the problem,” he said. “It’s almost impossible to clear the roads when you have those high wind gusts because when you clean the road the wind literally brings the snow back.”

That’s what happened on Madison Ave in the 90s. A convoy of plows cleared the street, a few minutes later the snow was back.

The mayor admitted conditions are difficult, and that the cold would make salting tough as well.

“Do not expect immediate improvement,” de Blasio said.

“If we don’t see blacktop by the time the temperature starts to fall tonight you’re not going to see it til Monday,” Sanitation Commissioner, Katherine Garcia said.
