I agree and to say that medical marijuana patients are drug addicts is absolutely blasphemous.

I think that if they were to not allow people with medical marijuana recommendations possess firearms, then they shouldn't let anyone with any prescriptions that say not to operate heavy machinery possess them either. It is ludicrous that someone who is on harsh, hardcore prescription pills should have more rights than someone on cannabis. It is just like the drug testing for jobs. The medical cannabis may be legal but the ides of it can't change people's minds alone; they need a close example of someone whose life has been improved drastically by cannabis.

I can't believe that they think medical marijuana is in anyway related to using guns or owning guns. I can see that maybe the gangster drug dealers carry weapons for status or to protect themselves from other gangster guys, but honestly the authorities need to realize that a majority of people who are using marijuana are peaceful and not interested in owning or shooting guns. I guess they will have to cut off anyone who drinks alcohol from owning a firearm, or anyone who has taken prescription pills. Whoever came up with this stuff must be high on something to think this is a good idea, this is just another good example of people who need to be taken out of authority postions and replaced by someone with a fresher brain. We don't need the old "dag nabat, you darn kids" type police or government anymore, We need educated humans who know what is right.

If the state of Oregon grants an individual both a medical marijuana card and a concealed weapons permit then there should be no question as to whether or not they can carry both. This is just one sheriff getting his panties in a wad and going after the wrong people.

If they think that gun violence has any correlation with the legality of MMJ then I have to say that they have no evidence to back up this claim. Why are we still citing laws from thee 60's? It's about time that they were changed them to fit with the present times and making things hard for the patients.

I can't really speculate because I am more bias towards the Gun Control Act; I just feel there is hardly control in the Gun 'Control' Act, but not just that its not just guns IT'S PEOPLE WHO KILL PEOPLE. However, in this situation I find it completely understandable and agree that patients, especially those who ARE PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO DEFEND FOR THEMSELVES, should be permitted to carry a firearm to protect themselves and their hard worked/earned medicine & cash crop (for the lazy thieves to take advantage of physically weak person).

I don't even see the correlation between the two permits. It doesn't make any sense to deny one because of the other. Will they also try to prohibit getting a fishing permit, a driving permit or any other combination?
SkillitHits247 | Apr 16, 2011
Good point, Green Gardner; there are a lot of required permits to obtain something or participate to do something, and we all know it costs money to get a permit for anything and it all adds up in THEIR pockets of revenue... Yes, I do agree that permits do serve a purpose to watch/find any abusers that endanger the community and others; however it is still being abused BY THE GOVERNMENT too!

Are they also going to try to take guns away from the patient who takes vicodin? Or other meds? or just MMJ patients really isn't that a little lopsided? When is the world going to realize we are talking about MEDICINE?

SH247 and sbsdewb good comments as well. It is so lopsided it just doesn't make any sense. It's another fact pointing out how it's just a scam by the gov't to control us and make a profit.
