Attempt to Legalize Pot in Wyo. Fails
Written by dariandudrick on April 1, 2021
The attempt to legalize marijuana has come up short once again in the Wyoming Legislature.
Neither House Bill 82 (implementation requirements for medical marijuana) nor HB 209 (regulation of marijuana) were considered by the state House of Representatives’ Committee of the Whole.
Richard Jones of Bottle Tree Behavioral provided details of both bills Thursday morning on KODI’s “Speak Your Piece with Darian Dudrick.”
Jones said the approximately 100-page HB 209 would’ve “fully legalized marijuana.” He added that interestingly, Cheyenne Republican Rep. Jared Olsen – the bill’s sponsor – received campaign contributions last fall from tobacco company Altria, which has invested $1.8 billion in recreational cannabis.
