My question involves criminal law for the state of: PA
I've searched for local attorneys and no one wants to touch this. I understand marijuana is still scheduled and illegal federally. I understand that any firearm purchase require the completion of federal Form 4473. I understand that because my State has legalized marijuana, I must still acknowledge that I am an "unlawful user of marijuana" (under federal law, not state) in Question 11e, of Form 4473.
If I recind/turn in my PA license to carry firearm (LCTF), am I permitted to keep my firearms secure in my home only?
I found an article here that indicates that the State has decided it "will no longer provide the names of medical marijuana patients to law enforcement."
A bipartisan outcry led by marijuana, gun and privacy advocates spurred state officials to reshape state policy. Patient medical marijuana cards will no longer be scanned and run through the state computer network.
"In the case that law enforcement needs to verify a patient's participation in the program, they will rely on the patient's medical marijuana ID card," a Health Department spokeswoman said. "While federal law prohibits anyone to purchase a firearm while using medical marijuana, a patient's status in the program will not be verified during the background check process through JNET."
Can anyone provide any opinions or referrals? Thanks.
