Gun sale bans for medical marijuana users constitutional, US appeals court rules — RT America
Gun restrictions applying to medical marijuana patients don’t violate any constitutional rights, a US appeals court has ruled. The decision comes in response to a Nevada woman, who accused the government of breaching her Second Amendment rights.
The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously voted 3-0 in support of the government’s power to ban medical marijuana card holders and users from buying arms.
Senior District Judge Jed Rakoff said that the ban was justified because using marijuana “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated,” according to the Associated Press.
