CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming House of Representatives killed both marijuana bills on March 22. The committee of the whole chose to not consider House Bill 82, implementation requirements for medical marijuana, and House Bill 209, regulation of marijuana, brought during the 66th legislative session.
Anticipated fiscal impacts for HB 209 included $30.7 million per year to the School Foundation Fund, 15.35 million per year to the Local sources fund, and 3.1 million in license fees in the fiscal year 2022. The projections were based on marijuana sales in Colorado, adjusted to the population of Wyoming.
Teton County Representative Mike Yin sponsored HB 209, along with 13 other lawmakers. Teton County Senator and Senate Minority Whip Mike Gierau co-sponsored HB 82.
