“COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio concealed weapons permit holders who become medical marijuana patients may be violating the law, Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart said Thursday morning.

Lenhart is a member of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee — a group that receives monthly updates about the state’s nascent cannabis program and can offer suggestions and raise questions to improve it.

Lenhart, speaking to the committee and state officials, pointed to two forms that gun owners must complete to apply for the concealed carry permit: A U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives form and the State of Ohio Application for License to Carry a Concealed Handgun.

In each form is the same question, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug or any other controlled substance?”

“Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside,” the ATF form cautions.”
