And, if so, then users with a Med MJ card are therefore, NOT "illegal" users. So, since they are not illegal users, they are not prohibited by law from buying a gun.
This seems clear, but I am probably missing something. Please, enlighten me, if you can.
Since marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act, under federal law it may not be legally prescribed by a physician. Therefore, any user of marijuana, even under a prescription issued by a physician under a state medical marijuana law, is an illegal user under federal law.
