Medical Marijuana and firearm ownership/purchasing

So Riddle me this and post links to viable sources if you know. What if you obtain a Medical Marijuana Card JUST TO GROW FOR PATIENTS, and don't use it yourself (the product).......are you still prohibited from purchasing or even owning a firearm? I know 4473 asks if you're an illegal user or addict (would be pretty dumb to say yes on that........but it's the Gooberment, so a dumb question is SOP).

I've started searching online and see nothing but blogs but haven't hit up the BATFE site yet, even posted the question on facebook for a response, but I figured someone here would know already.

I'm just curious about the laws, I have no intention of growing or using.....however it could be a source of income if one want's to waste their time on the horticulture. The way I see it, what's the difference in farming for a dispensary VS growing corn for the Gooberment for fuel?

    This :that:

    Regardless of the state law...possession and manufacturing are still a Federal beef.

    Ok, thanks Paul and Scott..........next question..........do the Feds have access to state registry of said MMC holders? Would it show up on a NICS search on your backgound check?

    Steve, keep in mind, all the medical marijuana cards and such are STATE sponsored, the prohibition on growing and the 4473 are FEDERAL. The fed's position on weed hasn't changed

    Aaahhh.....but the 4473 only ask if you are a user, not a grower.......I know cultivation is a Federal offense.......but the form doesn't ask that.

    Feds are laying off Washington and Colorado for now, but still can play their trump card with the BATFE is they wanted to. Some cities in CO have kicked out the legalization like Grand Junction.......but we Front Range Liberals and Libertarians call that our bible belt since they're close to U-TAAAAH!!!!!

    Thanks for the heads up.........guess Teach and I filled up the box pretty quick a couple of days ago. Emptying it now. Gimme 5 and send a message.

    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    That was big news around here then. (Jackson County, OR.) It reminded me of the old Vern Miller days in Kansas. "If it's a law, enforce it. If you're not going to enforce it, get rid of it." Only, without the aspirations of being Governor.

    Winter, and his staff, is very friendly to concealed carry applicants. And now, other citizens in other counties in Oregon have legal precidence if their officials are less friendly.

    It's sad that the Supreme court wouldn't hear the case and set a precedent one way or the other, and clear up the muddy water........maybe they're trying to say it's a state issue, this is were state and federal law clash.
