Plan To Deny Firearms Cards to Medical Pot Users Is Nixed

Medical marijuana patients shouldn't have any problem getting a firearms ID card.   A proposed state rule that would not permit that to happen has been removed.  It's not clear whether Illinoisans who own Concealed Carry Weapons Permits are affected.  Those rules are expected to be made public on Friday.  Federal law states that anyone who uses a controlled substance, including marijuana, is banned from owning or possessing a firearm or ammunition.  The rules now head to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, which would review and approve the rules following a 45-day public comment period.
