MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Court of Appeals has ruled that a medical marijuana patient can have a concealed handgun permit.
The court on Wednesday said Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters had no grounds to deny the permit sought by Cynthia Willis in 2008.
Winters had argued the federal Gun Control Act of 1968 was the legal basis of his decision.
The Court of Appeals rejected the sheriff's arguments and found that Willis complied with state law in her application

"When you're on pot"?
Sorry, not trying to nitpick or be an ass but when people say things like this it just makes me laugh. It's like when someone says "That individual is using marijuana". It's not "on pot", they're high. It's not "using marijuana", it's smoking. One way to cut down on the propaganda is watch the words and phrases you use. Because when you say "on pot" or "using marijuana" it makes it sound like weed is like some hard drug.
More on topic though, this is good news and a pretty significant decision even though it doesn't seem like it is.
