Legal Guide to Possessing a Medical Marijuana Card and Additionally Obtaining A Concealed Permit or License to Purchase a Gun
At the time the article was written (2016), they couldn’t provide very definitive answers since much of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and following privileges of its cardholders, when it comes to firearm possession, was still a gray area in both federal and state law. The correlation between the two subjects is very important, because when applying to buy a gun, of any variety, you have to fill out the License to Purchase form with the state, in accordance with federal law. On this form and the Concealed Permit License, you have to answer the question pertaining to possession and use of marijuana and any other controlled substances like it. We believe there is some help from federal statute 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3) pertaining to licenses and possession, but it still does not clarify the issue thoroughly. To be clear 922(g)(3) is a governing law, but it has subsequent amendments that should not be overlooked.
