CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A state legislative committee plans on sponsoring a bill that would make the possession of 1 pound or more of marijuana edibles a felony.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Mk8VFs ) the Joint Judiciary Committee decided to sponsor a bill Wednesday for the 2016 session that would criminalize the marijuana-infused products.

Legislators had debated whether to separate the amount of the psychoactive ingredient THC inside an edible, because the testing of THC content in edibles is still being developed in the U.S. But the bill under consideration criminalizes THC and the edibles’ other ingredients.

Judges had asked the committee in August for help in cracking down on marijuana edibles.
