CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A group of marijuana activists are looking to get medical marijuana on the Wyoming 2016 general election ballot after submitting an initiative application the Secretary of State’s Office.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1E6nE2Q ) that the local chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is sponsoring the citizen-led initiative. The group submitted a 13-page proposal in the form of a legislative bill Monday, the unofficial holiday for marijuana enthusiasts.

If the application meets state requirements, organizers will need more than 25,600 signatures by Feb. 8.

The proposal says the Wyoming Department of Revenue Liquor Division would regulate the marijuana industry. The state would have two years to pass rules and regulations.

Denver-based law firm Hoban & Feola LLC., which specializes in marijuana law, helped with the proposal.
