CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Medical marijuana won’t be allowed on Wyoming’s Wind River Reservation just yet after not enough people were present to vote on the proposal.
The Eastern Shoshone General Council lacked a quorum of 75 people to decide the issue Saturday, the Casper Star-Tribune reports.
The council plans to reconvene June 12 for another vote on medical marijuana.
The reservation’s other tribe, the Northern Arapaho, voted May 8 to decriminalize medical marijuana.
The Eastern Shoshone council passed several other resolutions, which are law on the reservation. They include allowing a new medical marijuana commission to regulate tribal-owned cultivation and extraction facilities for cannabis products.
Wyoming increasingly is surrounded by states that have legalized marijuana to some extent.
Montana and South Dakota residents voted last year in favor of legalization; the South Dakota referendum remains tied up in court. Colorado is approaching a decade of legal recreational marijuana.
