Wyoming Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Exempt Up to An Ounce of Marijuana from Possession Statutes

A bill sponsored by a Cheyenne Democrat would reduce the sentence for someone caught with up to an ounce of marijuana.

House Bill 49, sponsored by Rep. James Byrd, would alter the state’s possession statutes to make an exemption for marijuana. Someone caught with up to a half ounce of pot would be subject to a civil penalty of $50, the bill states. If they had a half ounce to an ounce, they would be fined $100.
