An Oregon woman and others can now have both their pistols and their pot. The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from an Oregon sheriff who denied a concealed handgun license to a medical marijuana user. The 54-year-old Gold Hill woman, Cynthia Willis, was originally denied a concealed weapon permit by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department. Sheriff Mike Winter argued that federal gun laws prohibited him from issuing a permit to Willis in 2008 because she also carried a medical marijuana card. Willis was later issued the weapon permit after winning in state appeals court. The Oregon Supreme Court upheld that decision last year.
