Wyoming Braced for Impacts of CO Pot Law

(Trevor T. Trujillo, Townsquare Media)

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming is bracing for increased marijuana crimes because of Colorado’s new constitutional amendment allowing anyone over 21 to use the drug.

The Associated Press reports Tuesday that police officers predict increased cannabis flow through Wyoming because of the Colorado pot law. The newspaper points out that no point in Wyoming is more than 180 miles from Colorado or Montana, which allows marijuana for people with certain medical conditions.

Under the current Wyoming state law, anyone arrested for possessing up to an ounce of the drug could face up to a year in jail or up to a $1,000 fine.

Wyoming lawmakers say they’re not expecting any change to state marijuana laws to be proposed in the upcoming legislative session.
