Default Richland Medical Marijuana Patient Denied Concealed Pistol License

RICHLAND, WA - A Richland medical marijuana patient recently applied for a Concealed Pistol License, but 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 Concealed Pistol License.

Richland police 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."

And even if marijuana is legal here, it's still illegal at the federal level.

When anyone applies for a concealed weapons permit with Richland police, they have to follow these federal restrictions.

All narcotics are a controlled substance. Will everyone be denied who has a prescription for a narcotic pain killer?

I wonder how the cops knew he had the weed? Aren't the CC permits controlled by the state? Either way, the way the winds are blown' on this issue, weed will be legal everywhere pretty soon. I bet within 10 years.

Good point. And how will the cops know THAT? Maybe it should be more along the lines of not possessing the gun while under the influence. (Kinda like alcohol. Isn't that a controlled substance, too?)

Aren't tobacco and alcohol "controlled substances?"

No they are not.

"The term 'controlled substance' means a drug or other substance, or immediate precursor, included in schedule I, II, III, IV, or V of part B of this subchapter. The term does not include distilled spirits, wine, malt beverages, or tobacco, as those terms are defined or used in subtitle E of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986." 21 U.S.C. § 802(6


The Federal Government classifies Marijuana as a "Schedule 1" Controlled Substance, meaning it has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, it is on par with Meth and heroine etc.
Doctors cannot prescribe Marijuana as a treatment under Federal law. They issue "recommendation" cards to the Medical marijuana supplier, but it is NOT a legal prescription.

Legally Prescribed drugs may be "controlled" substances but their use does not make one a "Prohibited" person. As Marijuana is a Schedule 1 controlled substance it cannot be "Legally" prescribed and anyone using it for any reason is a "Prohibited Person". A Prohibited person cannot legally own or purchase any firearm or ammunition.

He is a copy of the ATF's open letter to all FFL in the USA.

I think the Fed govt. has their heads in the sand on this one. For all of the people using weed, and for all the states that are making it legal, and for all the localities looking the other way, it might as well be legal. I'm not into such things myself, but the amount of people I know who are is amazing. Off the top of my head, I know at least 2 people who own guns and smoke weed.

First, individual States cannot make Marijuana "Legal". They cannot over-ride Federal law and make Legal what the Federal Government deems Illegal.

They can "Decriminalize" it, which is to refrain from using State money and manpower to enforce Federal Laws. This does not give the States the right to interfere with the Federal Government enforcing it's own laws within State boundaries.

I don't think so. My tinfoil hat tells me different.
I think the Feds and these left leaning States that are "legalizing" pot know exactly what they are doing and they have a plan.
What better way to Legally disarm a significant number of Americans? Legalize it, run a data base on users, cross reference this data base with Hunting Licences, ammo purchases etc. and bingo Instant Felon. Once identified as a "prohibited person" the alphabet agency of choosing can Legally disarm and confiscate.
