Florida Sues Federal Government to Exercise 2nd Amendment for Medical Marijuana Patients
Florida’s agriculture commissioner on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, arguing that the federal government is unconstitutionally depriving medical cannabis patients of their Second Amendment right to purchase and possess firearms.
The suit from Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Nikki Fried (D), who is also running for governor, makes a unique legal argument that a congressional spending rider preventing the use of Justice Department funds to interfere in the implementation of medical marijuana programs means that the feds can’t deny patients their gun rights.
If successful, the suit could have major implications for medical marijuana patients across the country who have long been subjected to a confusing patchwork of laws on whether they can own firearms.
Is it legal to use marijuana for medical purposes in Florida?
Yes, medical marijuana is legal in Florida. patients with a “qualifying condition” are able to receive a recommendation for medical marijuana from a licensed physician.
What are the consequences of sues federal government?
The consequences of suing the federal government are uncertain. It is possible that the state of Florida could be successful in their lawsuit and medical marijuana patients would then be able to purchase and possess firearms. However, it is also possible that the state of Florida could lose their lawsuit, which would mean that medical marijuana patients would still not be able to purchase or possess firearms.
While the outcome of this lawsuit is still to be determined, it could have major implications for medical marijuana patients across the country who have long been subjected to a confusing patchwork of laws on whether they can own firearms. This suit provides a unique legal argument that could set a precedent for other states to follow.
