If you are an illegal user of drugs as defined by federal law you are prohibited from possessing firearms/ammo period. Not being a drug user when you fill out the 4473 does not matter if you later become a user. At the time you become an illegal drug user you become a prohibited possessor. If you were a drug user and lied on the 4473 and it could be proven, that is a separate charge. Prohibited possessor status is all encompassing and is not limited to purchase. If you are a drug user and in a position to touch a firearm you may go to prison. Of course there is an argument as to how much drug use makes you a "user". One time use, probably not. Admitted daily use, defiantly.
