1) As long as no information about the condition for which marijuana is prescribed is given, there is not necessarily a violation.
2) Well, implied consent works for alcohol roadblocks. Different, I know. But still.
3) Maybe. Or else it will go to court. Which, in Hawaii, would be interesting.
However, since federal law (18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3)) makes it a felony for an “unlawful user of … any controlled substance” to “possess … any firearm,” and since marijuana is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance, it is a felony for a user of marijuana to possess a firearm.

I wish you lot were consistent with your outrage.
Laws to screw us little people are enacted all the time and you guys are happy about it, but as soon as they come for your guns it's the end of the world.
This is why we are being screwed over, wake up to it already.
This isn't actually about guns, though. It's about attacking people in order to deter the use of a medicinal plant that has been proven to work more effectively on chronic illnesses than any of the poison Big Pharma peddles, without dangerous side effects that make even more medication necessary and without the risk of chemical addiction...and about punishing those who do use it.
They can't force people to stop using an herb in lieu of chemicals, so they'll simply use their favorite tactic to cause trouble for them: hit em in the unalienable rights. And they know going after the guns will cause maximum uproar. They already know how many people out there are using medical Cannabis, because they're registered. As are gun owners. I'm betting the correlation between those two demographics is pretty high.
People who truly think this has anything to do with guns are simply taking the bait. This is about the drug industry and Cannabis stealing all the regular customers away from the poisons they've been pushing on the unwitting masses for so long. It's spiteful, childish retaliation.

It is a federal law which is the reason for the confiscation.
It might be notable that the police chief is brand new to the position. None of the chiefs of the other counties (islands) have issued such letters, yet.

Since you can also fire that ammo -that you're not allowed to have- using a vice and a hammer, maybe vices and hammers need to be turned in too...

How does my possession of a card prove my use of marijuana? Yes, its implied. Does that implication mean that I am ceding my rights without due process?
