The real question to ask about guns, pot

Success - Article sent! close

"Do guns, pot mix?" asks the headline for your Feb. 6 article on proposed rules for medical marijuana. Let me offer you an alternative headline: "Should a lifelong, law-abiding firearms owner who contracts a painful disease be forced to give up his guns?" And the same even for his caregiver?

I might add still another alternative: "Can anti-gun extremists create legislation fair to gun owners?"
