The state’s high court recently agreed to accept four cases involving marijuana dispensaries. Two more cases may be on the way, including the appeal of a Feb. 29 ruling in Orange County that said cities can’t ban cannabis stores but that such stores have to grow all of their pot on site – a requirement dispensaries say is impossible to satisfy.

The Oregon Supreme Court has ruled that retired bus driver Cynthia Willis can have her medical marijuana and her concealed handgun, too.
The court ruled Thursday that a federal law barring criminals and drug addicts from buying firearms does not excuse sheriffs from issuing concealed weapons permits to people who qualify, including those who hold medical marijuana cards.

As far as I’m concerned, all of the groups involved in marijuana law reform have an important role to play. It’s like the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard – we have different jobs and different specializations in service of the same goal. Sure, we have internecine grudges and rivalries. Just as jarheads goad sailors, just as grunts tease flyboys, drug war reform groups may also grouse about each other, but when the rubber hits the road, we’re all fighting for the good ol’ U S of A.

But now with legal medical marijuana in fourteen states, even law-abiding citizens are given the choice between their health and their Second Amendment rights. Often these medical marijuana patients are growing their own, so as not to pay expensive dispensary prices or fund the black market. These people, like Washington’s Steve Sarich, are the ones who most need their firearms for home protection from criminals who would rob them of their medicine.
