NORML submits 2016 Wyoming pot ballot proposal
Question of the Day
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Marijuana activists have submitted a proposal to legalize recreational marijuana use by Wyoming residents over 21.
The National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) submitted their ballot proposal last week to the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office.
The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1m527dX ) reports that the proposal is a blend of marijuana laws and legislative from several states, including Colorado, Washington and Wisconsin. It would also allow people with debilitating medical conditions to grow 12 pot plants.
The proposal must undergo a review by state lawyers and fiscal analysis and supporters would have to collect signatures from across the state before it could appear on the 2016 ballot.
Meanwhile, state Rep. Sue Wallis plans to bill in the upcoming legislative session to decriminalize marijuana for medicinal purposes.
