  1. Ok, No Xanax, Valium, hydrocodone, methadone, Alcohol , or you can't buy a gun, this is bullshit, cannabis users should have the right to own guns because they will never have a reason to use them !

  2. Fck the feds, the states should start withholding taxes if they can. This is the only way the states can bring the out of control fed back to order.

  3. it's stupid because you can buy alcohol and have a prescription for pain killers and buy a gun just doesn't make sense.

  4. Dr.matt Roman of philadelphia is taking govt.to court over this issue.hope he wins if not it time to take our country back.
