Gun and Cannabis rights

Maggie Kinsella, with the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition, said the group doesn’t have a position on limitation, but she personally sees it as unfair.

“There’s no restriction on alcohol consumption and gun rights, so this is just one more thing they’re trying to do to blockade cannabis consumers and put them into a lower class of citizenship,” she said. “It’s not right.”

But unless Congress changes the law, the ATF will keep enforcing it. O’Shaughnessy said the marijuana question isn’t something to be trifled with.

“If you answer falsely on this question here, on ‘question e,’ if you answer no and you actually are, you’re subject to a felony charge for lying on a federal form,” he said.

O’Shaughnessy said no one has been arrested in Massachusetts for answering the question falsely.
