Rep. Biteman Discusses Edible Marijuana Issue

A piece of legislation that would make possession of 3 ounces of edible marijuana a felony was supported by the legislature’s Joint Judiciary Committee

It did not, however, gain the support of District 51 Representative Bo Biteman who serves on the committee…

 

The bill is intended to close a loophole in Wyoming regarding edible or “non-leafy” versions of the drug.

Currently, more than 3 ounces of marijuana in leaf form is a felony charge, but the drug in any other form is not.

For Biteman, the prospect of overloading the prison system with those who would benefit from a treatment option is not the way to go…

 

With the advent of THC laced candies and other edibles, controlling the access to the drug has become a serious law enforcement issue.
