But of course it's never legally possible since the medical marijuana user is a prohibited person under federal law. Therefore under federal law, in the case of a private sale, both the buyer and seller would be liable to prosecution under federal law.

There was a certain campaign statement made that still bothers me...Something like"I'm going to form a civilian security force,as large and well equipt as our military..."
Posse Comatatus seemingly would not apply.

Farfetched and paranoid,maybe,but strange things are happening.

Suppose the health record database and the Firearms purchase records were cross referenced.

My crystal ball says they'd go easy.Make a deal.Yeah,we got you on a 10 year sentence,but,tell you what.Work for us.I bet you know lots of folks with guns....

Yeah,I know.Wild,pernoyd speculation...Probably never happen.What a buzzkill...

We are dangerously close to advocating an illegal action. Please be aware that it is a small step from theorizing to advocacy, as illustrated above.

I'm closing this thread to avoid having to ban anyone for making such comments.
