    Pot is federally illegal. Many of the gun laws we adhere to are federal.

    Until pot is legal on a federal level you can't smoke pot and do the gun thing.

    I have had an ATF officer tell me that after no smoking pot for a year you can legally buy a gun again, per case law.
    The even simpler function is to just stfu filling out your 4473 and go on about your business.

    Gun owners always seem to want to make things difficult for themselves.

    Part of the part of being "law abiding gun owners" is "law abiding". Of course it is easier to simply break the law. It's not the gun owners who are making things difficult for us, but the government who is making things difficult with convoluted and often conflicting laws. Please place your blame where it belongs.

    We need an ATF opinion letter like ASAP.
    That should clear things up

    According to the Illinois State Police, they will not revoke Firearm’s Owner’s Identification Cards based solely on a person’s legal use of adult use cannabis. However, it's still important to be aware that if an individual is addicted to or is a habitual user of cannabis, their FOID card may be revoked. It's also important to know that if you violate certain provisions of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, your FOID card may also be revoked or denied. Be sure to stay up-to-date on any new laws and regulations regarding cannabis and gun rights in Illinois. And also check out some of the USA seed bank for your cannabis seeds.

    I think a key question is "will the use of recreational marijuana prohibit you from a firearm purchase under Federal law?"

    The answer is an absolute yes. You'll either lie on the 4473 or if you tell the truth, the gun store will turn you away. This is true in all states.
