Fact Checker: Mostly False
States have NOT legislated any such thing
The Federal Government has (ATF) on the books a law against gun ownership and banned substances
and it's been on the books since the late 1930's
As long as Marijuana is a federally banned substance
the ATF (Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms)
can deny your rights based on possession of a federally banned substance
It's got nothing to do with "States"
tricky to enforce though...
most states have deleted the medical marijuana records - hard erase - like gone poof !
so the ATF has very little to go on and expends very little energy lookinghttps://apnews.com/fe737b9a314a485284298a6f14641aa5
Wrong, at least when it comes to Hawaii...
While they are not confiscating guns from anyone with a medical marijuana prescription, they have gained access to the database so the police are denying any new gun purchases if you have a marijuana prescription...http://www.cannabishealthcarehawaii.com/firearms
And if you chose to consume marijuana, either in a state that has legalized it, or the old fashion black market way, and you decide to purchase a weapon, you have to fill out an ATF 4473 (unless you do a face-to-face purchase, where legal)...On the 4473, if you tell the truth about your pot consumption, you will be denied...if you falsify your 4473 and deny consumption, then you’ll most likely make the purchase (all other things being good) but run the minor risk of being charged with falsifying a federal document...
