In Illinois, public officials have proposed a plan that would allow residents to give up their Second Amendment rights in order to obtain medical marijuana. As early as April, plans could be approved that would outline guidelines for the legal growing, selling, and purchasing of medical marijuana for 41 different medical conditions ranging from cancer to aids – because the people buying and selling marijuana are really good at following the rules.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
Patients who want to qualify for medical marijuana in Illinois would have to be fingerprinted for a background check and pay $150 a year — and give up their right to own a gun, state officials proposed Tuesday.
Now we all know that the ones doing the selling of this illegal substance will come up with any excuse in the book to get it into the hands of the people willing to pay for it, however illegitimate their medical needs are. And vice versa, I’m sure the state will see a huge spike in the 41 different ailments that medical marijuana will be prescribed for. When you can get pot for complex regional pain syndrome, something tells me there will be a lot more people floating around in “severe pain”.
So basically, Illinois residents may soon be given the opportunity to trade one of their most important constitutional rights to engage in illegal activity. Sounds like the gun grabbers are so eager to get weapons out of the hands of the public that they are actually willing to give us weed in return. It’s really not a surprising little scheme considering the current state of affairs – give us your guns and you can smoke all the pot you want! You’ll be up a creek without a paddle when it comes time to defend yourself, but seeing as you’re high as a kite, I guess that’ll ease the blow.
