Medical Marijuana

I’m a 26 year old disabled army veteran that got hurt being a paratrooper in a special operations unit. I’m about to give up my second amendment right because I refuse to use opiates for my pain and I like to be in control. Marijuana inebriates less than alcohol and opiates. Back, knee and wrist injury with terrible chronic pain. My wife will own my firearm collection and keep them in safes where I can’t access them. We will be moving from Texas to Oklahoma. If there was a home intruder and I take the gun from her. What do you think would happen? I’ll really appreciate the feedback and I know that it’s not legal advice. I just want your honest opinion. God bless you all!

There are other choices for pain. I would look into another option than MM. I personally use a Chinese doctor and I use a variety of teas and acupuncture to feel like a bull at full charge. I am 58, and for you, it will not ever get better but you will be tolerating more pain. The tea doesn’t taste good but. I feel better through the week. You do not need to go to MM but all said and done, it is your choice. Just know that there are other choices!

I have a herniated disk with bone spurs in my lower back that press on my nerves so my legs always feel asleep. I’ve had two torn meniscus and used to run marathons so my cartilage is gone in both my knees. I have to use knee braces to walk around my apartment and a cane if I want to go outside. I have a large tear in my tfcc, the joint between the two large bones in your forearm, and have to use a wrist brace all day. I have a special wrist brace that I used to use so that I can shoot. I wish my injuries were that simple. I love, LOVE guns. I’ve been shooting guns since I was twelve years old. I’ve tried everything and the nerve medication the doctor used to prescribe me disorients me to the point that I don’t even drive because it’s that disorientating. Military static line parachutes are not like the civilian parachutes. They’re made to fall faster than normal ones.

All I can suggest for the long term is krill oil and take it double what is daily suggestion. Three fractures on the spine confirms that the Krill oil helps over time. Your blood circulation is vital for healing and getting better. NO injuries are a simple fix. Anyone telling you otherwise is FOS!! There are things that will help but, that is all your gonna get. CBD ointment can do great things but, it will not effect you , like get you high! It really helps with pain. Like I said, there are options!

My other option is get prescribed Oxycodone and become legally addicted to the opium fields of Afghanistan.

Oxy only works for a short time. After a while ghost pains come when you become addicted and they are not addressed unless you are taking the Oxy till it kills you. I have seen it happen! When it is killing you, you take more because of the pain because your dying. Then your kidneys fail and your liver fails and you die a slow death.
There are other options!

I actually appreciate that. I didn’t know that, in that case I’ll just give up my gun rights. I don’t go anywhere without my wife anyway.

On a second note there’s a movement on congress. I will keep exercising my rights because clearly there’s a sufficient amount of people who also don’t want to be second class citizens. “When Tyranny Becomes Law Rebellion Becomes Duty”, and I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.

Delta-8 is legal for gun owners under the ATF Newsletter of June 2021 where they state. I’m not a lawyer but if CBD is federally legal for gun owners then so is Delta 8.
Heres an excerpt from the ATF’s June 2021 Newsletter:
In 2018, Congress passed the Agriculture Improvement Act, Pub. L. 115-334, 132 Stat. 4490. The Act amended the term “Marihuana” under the CSA to exclude “hemp.” 21 U.S.C. § 802(16)(A). The term “hemp” is defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” 7 U.S.C. § 1639o(1). The Act also amended Schedule I(c)(17) of the CSA to exclude from the definition of “Tetrahydrocannabinols” (THC) the “tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp (as defined under section 1639o of Title 7).” See 21 U.S.C. § 812(c), Schedule I(c)(17). Thus, Cannabis sativa L. and products derived from Cannabis sativa L., which have a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less on a dry weight basis, are no longer considered a controlled substance under the CSA. Products purporting to contain a THC concentration less than the prohibited amount are often marketed as “CBD” products, such as CBD oils, edibles, and capsules. Because of the 2018 amendments to the CSA, users of products that have a THC concentration “not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis” are not prohibited from purchasing firearms or ammunition under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3).

Holly mafuungo ; good work. I had to stop smoking a while back and it is a fight for life. I love the burn, the rush, plain language I have smoked everything you can smoke on this Earth, course I never inhaled. If doing something helps some one IE : PTSD THAN WHY NOT. Some of us have been exposed to things that have changed our lives, to the point of not wanting to wake up, lost in darkness, having memories that can’t go away.
IDK ANYMORE, SMOKE EM IF YOU GOT EM.
Peace.

I am at another crossroad i this life.

Interesting question Brandon107. Good luck in your health, journey, and investigation. Your question is rich with legalities.

Please also check with your local and state laws. Not my area of expertise, definitely check with your attorneys now, and don’t wait until a critical event.

What sparked my interest is form 4473, where it asks us if we use marijuana, even if for medical purposes.

Interesting to me is it doesn’t ask about other medications, which can alter the mind, even if just temporary for a few hours after taking the medication.

I have wondered how firearm buyers address or deal with medical marijuana use, legally. I wonder if one can check that they do use medical marijuana – if they all are disqualified or if some are approved; Vs. if they have to appeal it before approval?

No registration to buy alcohol is there, what’s wrong with that picture :question:

The Gun Control lobbies want to restrict citizens Second Amendment Rights through “Death By a Thousand Cuts”- Sun Tzu. The Mulford Act came out of racist origins and the Prohibition of Marijuana was the same however now that society knows that it has Medicinal qualities and Country folk like using it the argument has changed. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

If laws aren’t going to be followed by those who write them…

Use of marijuana makes you an illegal possessor under Federal Law, without regard to any state law legality. This means when filling out a 4473 at an FFL, if you admit to use, whether medical or not, your purchase will be denied.
Here in Arkansas, where a CHCL application includes an FBI background check with fingerprints (not just NICS), if you admit to marijuana use, medical or not, within the past 12 months, your CHCL application will be denied.
If you do not admit to medical marijuana use on a 4473 and it later comes to light that you were a user at the time of your 4473 and NICS check, you stand the chance of Federal criminal charges, as are being considered now for Hunter B.
If you are arrested in possession of a firearm and a medical marijuana card and the arrest comes to the attention of Feds (ATF, FBI, DEA, DHS, CBP, ICE, SS, etc.) you are likely to face federal charges as an illegal possessor (unless your father is a top level politician).

If you think all of the above is not how it should be, time to campaign to remove marijuana from the federal law listing illegal drugs.
