Wyoming Sheriffs Warn Visitors Weed is Still Illegal During Solar Eclipse...

August 14, 2017


There will be a total eclipse of the sun on August 21st, and the phenomenon is expected to bring people from around the world to visit states along its path across America stretching from South Carolina to Oregon.



One of the states that is expected to see an estimated 250,000 tourists is Wyoming, and on Friday, the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, a.k.a. WASCOP sent out an announcement essentially warning visitors that marijuana is still illegal during the eclipse.

Byron Oedekoven, executive director of WASCOP commented that "if you are caught with any controlled substance you will be charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug offense depending upon how much of that substance you have in your possession." He also went on to remind medical marijuana patients that "medical marijuana is not legal in Wyoming, and even if you have a card from another state it is still illegal to possess marijuana in Wyoming."



Recently, WASCOP sponsored an 'education' campaign called There is No Debate to "help educate residents about the harms marijuana causes to people and communities in the state." Some of the taglines on the campaign's website include "you don't smoke medicine" and "marijuana reinforces poor decision making."
