PA: A looming showdown: Guns or marijuana

Pennsylvania residents can now legally use marijuana for medical purposes. Some 10,000 Pennsylvanians are now literally card-carrying marijuana users. If you have the card you can access marijuana for any one of 17 different serious health conditions.

That is great news for people with cancer, epilepsy or Crohn’s disease to name a few. The news is not so good for gun buyers or owners who need cannabis treatment.

As the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put it, ”(S)ome sick people will have to make a difficult decision: Is taking the medicine worth surrendering what gun-owning advocates see as an enshrined constitutional right?”
 

Comment by: PP9 (1/14/2018)
"Pennsylvania residents can now legally use marijuana for medical purposes."
...and a few lines below that, in the same article,
"Under federal law, all forms of marijuana use remains[sic] a crime."

If something is a crime, you can't legally do whatever it is. It's hard to imagine that this contradiction could be more obvious, with the same article saying that one given act is legal and illegal.

If we were actually following the Constitution, there wouldn't be federal laws that seek to regulate behavior of citizens (which is a power granted exclusively to the states), but that hasn't been the case during my lifetime.
