How the Second Amendment is Literally Going Up in Smoke

The taking away of one’s constitutional rights through ‘Normalization’

By Teresa Reile

What’s behind the big push to legalize marijuana aside from the fact that the people who deal in it and the governments who regulate it stand to make billions?

Is legalization REALLY being pushed because ‘so many people are doing it anyway’, or because ‘so many people are in prison for smoking pot’ or ‘because it’s harmless because it’s a plant’?

 If you believe that’s all it is, then you have not been paying attention.

Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3), a person who is “addicted to or an unlawful user of” a controlled substance is considered a prohibited person for firearm regulation. The Federal Controlled Substances Act, Title II of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, 21 U.S.C. § 801 et seq., regulates marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance.

So, if you use marijuana and possess a firearm, you open yourself up to prosecution for a 10-year felony under federal law.

In other words, if you smoke pot, ‘legally’ with a medical marijuana card or not, you can not own a gun and you are subject to being convicted of a felony and facing up to 10 years jail time.

In September, 2011, the ATF directed all Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) “that regardless of whether his or her State has passed legislation authorizing marijuana for medical purposes, a person is an unlawful user and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.”  A potential purchaser is required to answer that they are such a person on ATF Form 4473, question 11.e.

A “legal” user is not allowed to purchase a firearmWilson V. Lynch, 835 F.3d 1083 (9th Cir. 2016)  Whereas a person’s second amendment constitutional right shall not be infringed, this ruling makes it legal for the government TO infringe upon that right. (This was a case wherein Ms. Wilson, a ‘legal’ marijuana user was not allowed to buy a firearm.  She sued and lost).

You have just lost your Second Amendment rights because of smoking a joint. 

Marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act, 21 U.S.C. § 812. A Schedule I controlled substance is deemed to have “no currently accepted medical use in treatment…and…a lack of accepted safety for use of the … substance under medical supervision.” Id. § 812(b)(1)(B) & (c). Federal law outlaws possession of a firearm by “unlawful user” of, or by a person addicted to any controlled substance, to possess a firearm (Title 18 U.S.C. §922(g)(3)). Even if you are ‘legally’ smoking pot, you are still considered ‘unlawful’ when it comes to purchasing a gun.

Why is this important?  Well, first look at the fact that over the past 20 or so years, the powers that be have been hard at work ‘normalizing’ mental illness and psychiatric drugs.  Their marketing mantra has been to ‘remove the stigma’ of mental illness.  In other words, it’s OK to be mentally ill.  It’s ok to be on psychiatric drugs.  Aside from the fact that a lot of people are making a LOT of money off of you or your child being ‘mentally defective’, they are making a ton of money off of the ‘treatment’.

But, did you know that if you are diagnosed mentally ill that you cannot own a gun?

They are now normalizing smoking weed.  It’s OK to smoke weed.  Some even go so far as attack those who oppose the legalization.  They call them names, say they are stupid etc.  But, in the end, who loses? Who is the stupid one? Who benefits?

Those of you who have fallen for their most excellent marketing scheme of normalization and have been diagnosed as mentally ill, now, not only are you labeled as mentally defective, and most likely addicted to the psychotropic drugs that have been prescribed, but you can no longer exercise your 2nd amendment rights as a US citizen.

Did you know that soldiers returning from battle are being diagnosed as being mentally ill in record numbers and being given psychotropic drugs for PTSD?  Did you know that 22 veterans PER DAY commit suicide? Suicide is a major side effect of the drugs that they give the soldiers.  Did you know that these same people who fought for our country cannot own a gun after being diagnosed mentally ill?

These people can go fight for the vested interests that promote ‘perpetual war for perpetual peace’ and when they are done, they are stripped of their constitutional right of being able to defend themselves from the very government that they fought for, as well as being labeled mentally defective.  They are caught coming and going.  If they don’t commit suicide because of the drugs, then they will be rendered harmless by the fact that they can’t own a gun and incapable because of the label that is put on them.

If the military can be decimated in this way, then they are not a threat to a tyrannical government.

If the population can be stripped of the right to bear arms, then they too are not a threat to a tyrannical government.

And what better way to do it than by giving them something that they think they want: Drugs.

Give them drugs, get them high, and they won’t even CARE what is happening to their rights.

What is behind this?  Really take a look.  If the whole country is ‘mentally ill’, on psychiatric drugs, and smoking pot…and consequently cannot own a gun…what is the end game here?

The destruction of our rights and ultimate control – that’s what.

With a whole population on drugs and unable to own guns, who do you think will have guns?  Criminals and governments will have the guns.  With the vets, who are trained to use guns unable to have guns, then no one will be able to stand up against a tyrannical government.

In an open letter in 2011 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made it clear that if you are smoking pot, you can’t own a gun.  They went on further to say, that just having a medical marijuana card could be considered “reasonable cause to believe” the individual of using marijuana unlawfully — even if the card complies with all state laws. If those cardholders own a firearm, that opens them up to be charged with a 10-year felony under federal law. These sentiments were reaffirmed in 2018.

So, I guess one will have to decide if having rights as afforded to them by the constitution are more important than getting high.

To those who think that smoking pot is more important than constitutional rights –  look on the bright side: when they come for your guns, hopefully the weed you’re smoking is so good, the brownies you’re are eating are so tasty, and the stuff you’re are watching on TV is so engrossing that you just won’t give a shit.

After all, that is the plan anyway.

Be on the alert to what is getting normalized.  The mass normalization always signals a loss of your rights.  Right now, as this is being written, not only is legalization of marijuana being normalized, but open borders, calling illegal aliens ‘immigrants’, Socialism, Electro-Convulsive Therapy, Full Term Abortion, Gender-Fluidism and the destruction of Religion are all in this very moment being ‘normalized’.

Be very careful what you wish for – You may just get it.

  • Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All-American pastime, alcohol.

    Plain and simple!

    Legalize Nationwide!

    Fear of Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is unfounded. Not based on any science or fact whatsoever. So please prohibitionists, we beg you to give your scare tactics, “Conspiracy Theories” and “Doomsday Scenarios” over the inevitable Legalization of Marijuana Nationwide a rest. Nobody is buying them anymore these days. Okay?

    Furthermore, if all prohibitionists get when they look into that nice, big and shiny crystal ball of theirs, while wondering about the future of marijuana legalization, is horror, doom, and despair, well then I suggest they return that thing as quickly as possible and reclaim the money they shelled out for it, since it’s obviously defective.

    The prohibition of marijuana has not decreased the supply nor the demand for marijuana at all. Not one single iota, and it never will. Just a huge and complete waste of our tax dollars to continue criminalizing citizens for choosing a natural, non-toxic, relatively benign plant proven to be much safer than alcohol.

    If prohibitionists are going to take it upon themselves to worry about “saving us all” from ourselves, then they need to start with the drug that causes more death and destruction than every other drug in the world COMBINED, which is alcohol!

    Why do prohibitionists feel the continued need to vilify and demonize marijuana when they could more wisely focus their efforts on a real, proven killer, alcohol, which again causes more destruction, violence, and death than all other drugs, COMBINED?

    Prohibitionists really should get their priorities straight and/or practice a little live and let live. They’ll live longer, happier, and healthier, with a lot less stress if they refrain from being bent on trying to control others through Draconian Marijuana Laws.

  • So, if you would, clear something up for me. Is this law only for people who are cleared to smoke medically right now?What if Pot is legalized to smoke and decommissioned as a Drug with a schedule 1 classification under the law? What about when it’s the same as alcohol and tobacco? What about when it’s 100% legal?

    • I also meant to say, when its as legal as alcohol and tobacco, will it still be illegal to own guns and smoke marijuana? I’m very curious about this stupid law!!

  • This is how Socialists operate….they are addicted to power and will pursue any option to gather the power they crave….they seek to have absolute power and will do anything to get it and keep it…part of getting the power is to remove it from the people….
    In order to gain control they must remove those in-a-lien-able rights….along with the ability to resist….so, they employ the doctrine of Marxist Socialism…..the idea that wealth must be “redistributed”, etc….but, as with all variations of Socialism….Nazis, Soviets, etc….The Socialist ideal is simply part of the path to power for those few “elites”…..ultimately they will become dictators, just as Facists, etc were….. When that happens, they will start eliminating in mass all those people they duped and used that they feel are “unneeded”… History is repeating again and will not stop until we finally realize that Socialism doesn’t work and it is fundamentally corrupt…and of course, we must choose to stop trying it over and over…..proving the definition of insanity really is repeating the same thing over and over hoping for a different outcome….
