Law On Marijuana Edibles Remains Hazy As Legislators Decline To Sponsor Bill

 Wednesday, November 16, 2016

A group of lawmakers tasked with crafting a bill to criminalize edible forms of marijuana declined to pursue legislation after the owner of a chemistry lab described the difficulties of testing the active ingredient of cannabis in food. That means many Wyoming judges will continue to dismiss felony cases of marijuana edibles, interpreting existing state law as only applying to the plant form of the substance. Although a majority on the Joint Judiciary Committee voted to reject their draft bill Tuesday at a meeting in Casper, an individual legislator can sponsor a bill in Cheyenne in January.
