A doctor who takes medical marijuana sues for the right to own a gun

A Philadelphia doctor filed a federal suit Thursday challenging a law that prevents him from owning a firearm because he is also a medical marijuana patient.

Matthew Roman, 34, operates a practice in Old City. He uses cannabis to treat his diagnosed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In April, Roman attempted to buy a Smith & Wesson 638 revolver from a federally licensed dealer for self-defense. He drove to Firing Line in South Philadelphia and, with the advice of a friend, settled on the snub-nosed, five-round handgun.
