Cannabis and Firearms: Hazy Situation, Part 2 | Legal Marijuana Use

Editor’s Note: This is Part 2 of “Hazy Situation” in a series on cannabis and firearms originally appearing in Concealed Carry Magazine. “Analyzing the Impact” of Cannabis and Firearms will appear in the February/March 2021 issue of Concealed Carry Magazine, and “Unforeseeable Future” will appear in the April 2021 issue. The U.S. Concealed Carry Association and Concealed Carry Magazine have no editorial stance on marijuana legalization or the medicinal benefits of cannabis. The aim of this series is nothing more than to examine the legal concerns and ramifications that firearms owners who are also medical cannabis users face as states across the country continue to legalize marijuana while the drug remains a controlled substance under federal law.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Part “3” is also out in the USCCA magazine. The first article attached below describes how cannabis can still be detectable in your system three months after use. The second article warns you never to mix use when firearm carrying, and simulates you being in court. If you truly need it for medical reasons, that’s your prerogative; I respect your pain. I don’t use, but support that our community continue receiving education. Stay healthy friends.
