Summary

Because until you change the federal laws, you can’t point to a federal law, or the Second Amendment of the Constitution and say that it gives you freedom, while ignoring the other federal laws that say you don’t have it if you break any of their other laws. So even when states pass medical cannabis laws that specifically do not exempt a medical cannabis user from any other rights, the medical cannabis user still loses their right to own and possess a firearm or ammunition under federal law. So in short, if you think that the Second Amendment guarantees you a right to bear arms, you are right. If you were to ask a convicted felon if they have a legal right to possess a firearm, they would say no. But you are giving up that right as soon as you pick up a cannabis product, medical or not, and consume it.
