Is weed legal in Wyoming?
No. Wyoming has not legalized recreational or medical marijuana, therefore it is against the law to use or possess cannabis in the state.
However, hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products that contain less than 0.3% THC by weight are legal to use and possess.
On March 6, 2019, the state enacted HB0171, which Gov. Mark Gordon signed into law. It legalized hemp and gave the Department of Agriculture authority over its production and regulation.
After the signing of HB0171, the Department of Agriculture submitted its plan for regulating hemp in the state to the US Department of Agriculture. The act formally removed hemp-derived CBD from Wyoming’s list of controlled substances.
There have been at least two attempts to place marijuana legalization on the state ballot, including an effort to get it in front of voters in 2018. But advocates failed to gather enough signatures to qualify.
