I don’t approve of carrying a firearm before, during or immediately after smoking pot. But just as there’s a bit merry on booze there’s a bit buzzed on weed. I don’t think someone who’s smoked a joint is necessarily an inherent danger to public safety. Shouldn’t the legality of smoking and carrying depend on what the intoxicated gun owner does — or doesn’t do — with a gun while high?
Innocent until proven guilty? In some (but not all) states I can sit in my car when I’m drunk or stoned. It’s only when I drive that I fall afoul of the law. Shouldn’t the same rule apply to carrying a gun or, for that matter, a knife? Or should a gun owner lose their gun rights forever if they’re caught carrying after toking-up?
