(Are you naive enough to think VOTING will fix this entrenched system?)
That’s not Rohrabacher’s basis though.

Really? The border is not secure, the IRS is targeting Conservatives, Govt agencies are arming up swat teams and veterans are being denied healthcare but what moves Republicans to act fast is protecting States with druggies who want to get high....interesting priorities.

So, when you are prescribed medical marijuana, will this be used as a backdoor method causing you loose your right to own a firearm? It would seem very easy for some anti-gun bureaucrat to change this statement...
ATF Form 4473-1
e. Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?
...to this statement...
e. Are you a user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?
Don't trust government. They want a disarmed America. They continually demonstrate this through words and deeds.

(Vote for Conservatives not for Republicans)
Our county just approved a medical marijuana farm last night - the new “growth industry.” (15 to 20 jobs) which will ultimately spawn a new name for Freeport - “Freepot.” /s
Theres not a whole lot of new American industries that are spawning like this that are going to grow like this, President Jeff Basler said in the meeting. You gotta get one.

Opponents said that marijuana is regulated too loosely by the states
Opponents should keep their noses out of the business of states other than their own.

"The heart and soul of the Republican party is that pro-freedom, individual philosophy that Reagan talked about," said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), the primary Republican pushing the amendment.
Not THAT'S funny.
