The Oklahoma Senate Approved a Bill to Protect the Gun Rights of Medical Cannabis Patients.
OKLAHOMA CITY — 2/26/20
The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday voted in favor of a bill that would protect the Second Amendment rights of medical marijuana cardholders.
Current law in Oklahoma precludes people from being eligible for a handgun license if they have any violation relating to illegal drug use or possession. According to a news release, Senate Bill 959, which was authored by Sen. Nathan Dahm, would clarify that "this prohibition does not apply for applicants or licensees in possession of a medical marijuana card."
The bill would make it illegal, however, for a person to carry or use a gun while under the influence of medical marijuana.
