Feds: Oklahoma medical marijuana users can’t possess guns

The Associated Press - June 30, 2018 7:43 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Federal officials say Oklahoma residents with medical marijuana cards will be prohibited from obtaining gun permits after voters recently approved the medical use of the drug.
State residents voted in favor of the marijuana measure Tuesday. The move puts Oklahoma gun owners in a conflict 25 other states are facing between state and federal laws governing guns and marijuana.
Federal law says it’s illegal to possess both a gun and marijuana.
Don Spencer is the president of the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association. He says state gun owners who need marijuana for treatment should be allowed to possess both.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives recommends those who may consider obtaining a marijuana card to contact legal counsel or the agency for guidance on how to legally transfer, sell, or dispose of firearms.
