A Sept. 21 letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also says dealers can?t sell a gun or ammunition if they have ?reasonable cause to believe? the buyer is using controlled substances, even if the state allows it.
U.S. attorney?s spokeswoman Jessica Fehr says the memo reiterates existing policy.
Gary Marbut of the Montana Shooting Sports Association says the policy denies constitutionally protected gun rights to individuals who are following state law.
He's right, there is no logic at all to this provision. It's still legal to drink alcohol which every cop knows can fuel violence but bans a drug known for it's peaceful laid back effects. I never expected Obama to legalize it considering the Right would fault him for anything but why the hardass attitude.

blucher, this is a great example of why I don't like the size and scope of the federal govt. It's to big. Things like this, and most other hot topics should be left to the individual states for regulation.
This is just another veiled attempt from the top to try to stifle the cannabis awakening that this country is having. The federal government as a whole is having to address this and is stomping and kicking every step of the way. This is just one of their many tentacles that are trying to make their last stand against the movement.
Bitch move IMO, but then again - its politics. What do you expect?
