If I am legally using marijuana for medical purposes in... whatever states it's legal in right now, I'm not breaking any laws. But, if I fill out an FFL form, then it's magically illegal? I just don't get it.
Hence the potential 10th Amendment issue.

I know a couple of folks on Rx's that do not need to be near firearms.
A few months back, I almost got shot by a kid on Adderall who was trying to clear his pistol before entering the range. The guy was shaking, his pupils were dilated, he was visibly agitated and he couldn't maintain eye contact. The legal prescription status of the drug is irrelevant: he was on amphetamines, and was clearly unable to handle a firearm safely.

But, as you say cannibis used as a medicine in proper doses would present no threat to me by someone else.
Until one of them forces you to listen to the second side of Close to the Edge, which is apparently, like, one of the, like, greatest records ever, man
