If you are in a state that has Medical Marijuana License does that Federal Government claim that you may not buy a pistol or any gun if you have the MML. I live in Michigan and I was denied a pistol, so if I cancel my license can I then get a pistol?

Unfortunately, Yes. Though States allow Medical Marijuana, the Federal Government still deems it as an illegal controlled substance. When you fill out a ATF 4473, one of the disqualifying factors is using what they call an “controlled substance” regardless of state legality.
