This is an interesting turn of events.

Florida’s Democratic Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is now planning on dropping a lawsuit against President Biden and his administration in an attempt to block them over a rule that prevents medical marijuana users from buying guns or maintaining concealed-carry permits.

According to Yahoo, the lawsuit is targeting a federal document that asks “whether the gun buyer is an unlawful user of drugs and specifies that marijuana is illegal under federal law. A person allowed by the state to use marijuana must then check “yes,” which results in denial of the purchase. Lying by checking “no” runs the risk of a five-year prison sentence for making a false statement.

Fried is arguing that this specific legal document infringes on the Second Amendment rights of law abiding medical marijuana users.

Fried explained, “Medical marijuana is legal. Guns are legal. This is all about people’s rights. And I don’t care who I have to sue to fight for their freedom.”

It is uncommon for a Democrat to sue a Democratic administration on an election year however, Fried believes this issue can no longer be pushed off and something must be done to stop it.
