Marijuana is still considered an illegal substance in Wyoming for both recreational and medical purposes. There is no medical program like some other states the punishments for use are quite strict. However, there is possible diversion for first offenders. Here are some punishments related to marijuana use:
Being under the influence of marijuana in public is a misdemeanor, punishable by 90 days in jail and a $100 fine.
Possession of 3 oz or less is a misdemeanor, punishable by 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Possession of more than 3 oz is a felony, punishable by 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Possession within 500 feet of a school adds $500 to the related fine.
Cultivation of any amount is a misdemeanor, punishable by 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, Wyoming has been known to add intent to distribute charges if it is over a ‘personal amount,’ which is up to the cop.
Distribution of any amount is a felony, punishable by 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Distributing any amount to a minor who is three years younger doubles the jail time.
