Likewise, it’s not just conviction for minor crimes that can result in gun confiscation. If you have a medical marijuana card lawfully issued under your state’s laws, you cannot possess a firearm. Doing so is a felony. Go directly to jail, do not pass Go.

True. But, to be fair (not fair, but more info?) if you have a medical marijuana card issued under your state’s laws, and you use it, you are a felon in the eyes of the federal government whether you possess a firearm or not. It’s just straight federally illegal to begin with

But note that if you are charged with a drug crime and are in possession of a firearm, there are steep mandatory minimum prison sentences. While dated, the report below by the US Sentencing Commission should scare gun owners who also legally use marijuana under their state laws. The average sentence for those convicted a drug crime while in possession of a firearm was 12 years according to the report.
