The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Wyoming
Wyoming has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the United States. Cannabis itself is not allowed for medical purposes, but a 2015 law allows limited use of non-psychoactive CBD oil.
Possession of under three ounces of cannabis is a misdemeanor that can be punished with up to a year in jail and a $1000 fine; possession of over three ounces is a felony.
Wyoming’s HB 32, establishes a registration process which allows a neurologist to recommend CBD cannabis extracts to a patient suffering from intractable epilepsy or seizure disorders.This law extends legal protections to some patients using some high CBD extractions. The law does not contain any provision for cultivation, production or distribution of cannabis and therefore forces patients to leave the state to legally acquire their medicine. The law only allows for extracts with greater than 5% CBD and less than 0.3% THC by weight. The only patients eligible for this program are those with intractable epilepsy and seizure disorders. Minors are eligible for medical cannabis, though their parents or legal guardians must administer it.
Becoming a Patient in Wyoming
Registering for protections under HB 32 requires that a patient (or a minor patient’s parent or legal guardian) complete an application and the patient’s neurologist complete two additional forms: a written certification and a patient evaluation record. A patient must also submit proof of residency and an application fee. After processing by the Department of Health the patient will be issued a Hemp Extract Registration card.
