Thread: Nevada CCW vs. Medical Marijuana License

    Smile Nevada CCW vs. Medical Marijuana License

    I hold a Nevada CCW. I also have chronic insomnia and a few other conditions that would be covered with medicinal marijuana. Nevada has a medicinal marijuana law in place that would allow me (under Dr. supervision) to buy pot from dispensaries.

    can i proceed with getting a doctor's reccomendation for medicinal marijuana whilst having a CCW?

    i'm no "pot-head" i'm just a guy fed up with not being able to sleep and doesn't want to take psychotropic drugs Lunesta or Ambien (which are EXTREMELY unpredictable). i just need a puff or two to sleep...legally.

    i' like to hear your feedback if you live in states that have both CCW's AND MML's

    There are probably FED laws against it. State law may allow it. I would think that if you used a gun even in self defense you would have to be able to pass a drug test. I wouldn't want documentation, Laws can change over night, then where would you stand, you'd be on a list I wouldn't want to be own. You could lose the right to own a gun.

    There is no such thing as "Medical Marijuana."

    All these laws are just ploys for stoners to get legal dope!

  5. CC laws generally prohibit one from carrying concealed while under the influence of any substance. And since the active ingredient of cannabis stays in your blood stream for up to 30 days, then you could not carry concealed for 30 days after consuming. Other than that, no problem. Someone taking an opiate for pain would be in the same position.

    Just my opinion, everyone has one and is entitled to it.

    I should start a new product line. Medical Marijuana Recipiant badges, similar to those wuvable CCW badges.

    Just because its in your blood stream, doesn't mean its mind altering. From your logic, anyone that had ONE beer on saterday, cant carry on monday, because alcohol stays in you blood stream for 48 hours. Anyone with a pulse will tell you that your mind isn't altered the next day having one beer, nevermind 2 days after.

    I've got nothing against medical weed, but you probably would have to choose one or the other. There are many ways to treat insomnia that are extremely effective and do not require drugs. Bighouse Doc can probably help, as I believe he has treated thousands of patients living in high stress environments. This is not meant to be sarcastic, Doc, even though we've sparred a bit on this site.

    There are some issues with Nevada's medicinal marijuana law, but you should be careful as it is a misdemeanor to be in possession of a firearm if your BAC is above a .10 or you are under the influence of controlled substances. While the NRS is silent on what levels mean you are under the influence, for DUIs having 2 ng/ml of marijuana or 5 ng/ml of the metabolite in your blood is enough to be per se and get convicted for DUI. That is lowest level that can normally be detected so if you smoke marijuana once a day, it is likely to start showing up in your blood quickly.

  10. After reading many of these messages about medications and ccw, I am concerned that I might be in a dangerous situation. Two months ago I ruptured a disc in my back and the Dr. perscribed Tramadol and Diclofenac for the pain. Could anyone tell me if I would be illegal to carry now that I am on these two medications? If these meds make me illegal than I might as well sell my guns because I will have this condition for the rest of my life.
    Any advise will be deeply appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Tramadol is an partial opiod agonist with LESS addiction liability than most regular opiods. I don't see it listed on my reference as a scheduled controlled substance. I don't use it since it isn't in our formulary.

    Diclofenac is another NSAID like ibuprofen, aspirin.

    Your doc is tackling the pain from two aspect, analgesia and inflammation control.
