Here in California, marijuana is semi-legal, but not recognized federally. Many northern communities thrive on the cash crop and have elaborate financial arrangements between growers and loaned money. If the feds roll a crop, the grower is screwed in more ways than one. The irony is, if you are in Arizona, you can carry legally any pistol you want, but possesion of even a gram of marijuana is a bust. In Ca, you can have an ounce in possesion if you have a medical card, but carrying a pistol without a CCW permit is bad juju. Getting a CCW in Ca is next to imposssible, and getting a medical marijuana card in Az is next to impossible. Two sister states, extremely differant rules in this regard.
