Will Hall, an attorney with the Dean, Mead & Dunbar firm who represents the plaintiffs, told The News Service of Florida that the Supreme Court ruling puts the onus on Garland’s office to justify the gun restriction. “Our reading of the case is the federal government has to show that this regulation, which is basically treating medical marijuana patients as if they are just, per se, too violent to possess guns, has some kind of historical tradition, and we just don’t see it,” Hall said Tuesday.

Hall said Fried’s legal team scoured the issue to see if there was “any equivalent regulation” in the distant past. “We just can’t find it,” he said. “There’s really no equivalent for what we have in medical marijuana now, which is that the states have made it legal and the federal government has, not just through a letter or some promise but through law, said we will protect those programs from interference.” Fried, a lawyer who is Florida’s lone statewide elected Democrat, is a “huge advocate” for “reasonable gun laws that make people safer,” Hall noted.

“Her view is that this regulation just doesn’t make anyone more safe. If anything, it makes people less safe because it pushes them towards, if you’re a medical marijuana patient who wants to buy a gun, pushes you to a private sale versus a gun store where you actually follow the ATF protocols,” he said, referring to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

“Quite simply, there is no historical tradition of denying individuals their Second Amendment rights based solely (or even partially) on the use of marijuana,” the lawsuit said. “In fact, historical evidence shows that marijuana was considered a legitimate and legal form of medicine in England, America, and other western countries through the mid-Nineteenth and early-Twentieth Centuries.”

That’s hilarious! A 17 y/o kid made up that image of the St Bernards carrying brandy on rescue missions! This despite the fact that alcohol would be the last thing you should give a freezing human body trapped in snow if you wanted them to live. I’ve thought long and hard about this very question over the years and only now know this fanciful idea about St Bernards is complete fiction. Funny how cultural ideas are born then carry a life of their own.

Just took my oldest cat to the vet, diagnosed with the feline version of epilepsy and prescribed phenobarbital. I have read that marijuana can also control seizures of this type and since she already loves catnip...

Seems there is a breath test for the cannabis crowd to demonstrate their fitness or lack thereof for engaging in driving, shooting, or typing crapola and posting online so as to keep the disturbance at a low roar.

This discussion should be had on the history of medical efficacy and effectiveness, not political prejudice. If the stuff works, then use it.

Technology changes, attitudes change, laws must change to work with the reality on the ground.

Personally I don't partake in any drug use and gave up Ganja decades ago. I even stopped taking CBD.
Stoners just go to Taco Bell..they don't beat up their girlfriends.

Coffee?
I know I'd have to be stoned to eat at Taco Bell.

Based on that article I can suggest you spike Fluffy’s food with a little CBD oil. Not a lot. Just a small, consistent amount since CBD has to build up in the body to have any effect on the regulatory system.

Do not crush weed and feed it to your cat. That’s a bad idea, especially since the compounds in the raw leaf isn’t bio-available until it is heated.

So that's why they tell you to never eat the dough raw.

I don't know about cats but when I was taking CBD I would have to take more and more for the same effect on my joint pain and pretty soon you have to buy stronger and stronger bottles. Regardless of what they say I developed a tolerance to it even though I was taking the pure unadulterated stuff, not the stuff cut with palm oil.
Make sure you do your research before giving it to pets.
