I'm definitely with you on this, at least for the most part. However, he did say....

And while I understand what he wrote, he is completely wrong.

One might he a lawful user under state law. But one can not be a lawful user under federal law. Under federal law, marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance and may not be lawfully (under federal law) prescribed.

So a person who may be lawfully using marijuana under a state medical marijuana law is still an unlawful user under federal law and therefore a prohibited person under 18 USC 922(g)(3).
