State Police won’t be revoking FOID cards over legal cannabis use

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Illinois State Police won’t be revoking anyone’s FOID card for using cannabis legally. However, anyone with a felony conviction involving cannabis, or anything else, still can’t get a FOID card even now that cannabis is legal. Illinois State Rifle Association Lobbyist Ed Sullivan says where Illinois law contradicts federal law is when someone wants to buy a gun from a federally licensed dealer. A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives form required for all gun purchases asks whether the buyer uses cannabis.

Sullivan says Illinois State Police could possibly revoke someone’s FOID if they are using cannabis illegally – like driving under the influence. Dispensaries aren’t allowed to keep any personal information on cannabis buyers unless they get permission to do so.
