The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that people in the state with medical marijuana cards also can carry concealed weapons.
Cynthia Willis calls up and down the firing range to be sure everyone knows she is shooting, squares up in a two-handed stance with her Walther P-22 automatic pistol and fires off a clip in rapid succession. She is part of what is considered the first major court case in the country to consider whether guns and marijuana can legally mix.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters faces a showdown at the Oregon Supreme Court on March 3 with a local medical marijuana patient who was denied a concealed handgun permit.
The woman who brought the case, retired bus driver Cynthia Willis, said she feels "like a big girl now" because the court found medical marijuana patients should be treated like everyone else.
"Under the medical marijuana law, I am supposed to be treated as any other citizen in this state," she said. "If people don't stand up for their little rights, all their big rights will be gone."
