With marijuana legal next door in Colorado, what should Wyoming’s stand on the substance be? During the upcoming legislative session, Representative James Byrd of Laramie is proposing to revise the penalty for possession of small amounts of marijuana downward, while another bill may also be introduced by another state representative to decriminalize the substance if used for medicinal reasons. Teton County Senator Leland Christensen told local elected leaders he has heard from numerous constituents on the subject. He says while there are examples traveling the internet of how marijuana has benefited people in their final days or seizure behavior in children, there has been no real evidence in the medical industry to validate it. Teton County Representative Keith Gingery added that the definition of medical marijuana in states that have passed laws legalizing such use have become very confusing. He says reduction of the penalties, including lowering the fines and eliminating jail time for smaller amounts, probably has more of a chance of passage than legalizing medical uses. He adds, however, that a presumptive level for driving under the influence needs to be established just as it is for alcohol use.
