A bill to regulate marijuana in Wyoming, HB0209, was supported by the Wyoming Marijuana Policy Project (WMP) and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). Yesterday (March 2) schools were allocated $30.7 million in tax revenue from state marijuana taxes under bill number HB 0209.
The law will allow the state of Wyoming to regulate the sale, purchase, possession, and cultivation of marijuana. If the law is passed, people over 21 years of age will be allowed to possess up to 1.5 grams of cannabis per person per day in Wyoming.
It aims to define the legal status of marijuana in the state of Wyoming and other states with similar laws.
The law will define conditions, outline specific personal rights, change the criminal code, set civil penalties for possession of a certain amount, and specify additional marijuana offenses - related offenses. It also generally defines the legal status of marijuana-related activities and prohibits discrimination based on marijuana activities. The law amends outdated provisions of the state's marijuana law and will change the criminal code.
