MD State Senator confusing 2A plans

I was reading in the Carroll County Times about the state politicians' plans for the GA session. They mentioned Senator Michael Hough, R - District 4 and his plan to introduce a bill to allow Marylanders who have medical marijuana cards to still buy firearms. I am wondering how that would work since the people are being denied the ability to purchase by the Feds, through the 4473 process, not by the state. Any ideas?

Unless I am mistaken, it is similar to the “No Fly, No Buy” firearm ban proposal from the recent past—something that cannot be implemented, but shows “compassion thinking” to that voter block.

I don't understand how weed can be legal in any manor since it is against federal law. If the state can ignore federal law why can't i ignore state law?

There is no 4473 for face to face Rifle, and Pistol transactions through the barracks. It would require the 77R for the pistol, which is a Maryland document. They would not be able to go through an FFL, but they could still get a firearm I believe.

The language of the question of the 4473 says “are you an unlawful users of, or addicted to, ...”

Under MD law if it is medical marijuana, then you aren’t an unlawful user under MD law. And use does not necessarily indicate addiction.

Yes it is illegal under federal law, for now. But along those lines, the FDA did approve the first marijuana based treatment (for a seizure disorder), which actually makes that narrow case not “unlawful use” under federal law also.

I believe the idea behind the law is that MSP can’t deny 77r stuff based on having a medical marijuana card nor can or will the state of Maryland pass along that information to the feds.

Probably still means in the eyes of the ATF you are committing a federal crime.

I’d be surprised if feds don’t decriminalize in the next few years.

Because, even though it gets ignored, the feds really can’t say shit based on the constitution so long as that weed stays in Maryland from start to consumption. They only have jurisdiction across state lines. But that gets generally ignored.
