SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming lawmakers will continue discussing how to penalize possessing edible forms of marijuana.

The Legislature has tried and failed for two years in a row to set specific penalties for food items containing THC, the intoxicating chemical in marijuana.

Sheridan Media reports (https://bit.ly/2rRi8CI) the Legislature’s Joint Judiciary Committee plans to take up the issue again Tuesday and Wednesday in a meeting in Sheridan.

The biggest problem is determining how much THC a product contains. Testing for THC is fairly expensive and time-consuming.

The committee also plans to discuss penalties for stalking, domestic violence and sexual assaults, and review the effectiveness of probation and parole.
