Wyoming is unlike any state in America. It used to have large amounts of roaming buffalo; it hosts mountains and grasslands and is the site of the famous Yellowstone National Park. These are all good reasons why you might not be surprised that Wyoming weed growing is a bit unlike weed growing elsewhere.
First of all, it is the only state to arrest people for being under the influence of marijuana. Other states will arrest those who are driving, or those who are seen using marijuana, or even those who have it on them- not Wyoming. Instead, this state arrests those who have used marijuana and puts them in jail for up to 90 days.
Legally, Wyoming is in the middle of everything. To the north and south are the pro-marijuana states of Montana and Colorado. However, on its east and west are the strongly opposed states of Idaho, Utah, Nebraska and South Dakota. Wyoming sits directly between the free-spirited West Coast and Midwest Americana. On a greater scale, not many people are impacted by Wyoming’s laws as the state has the least amount of people in the entire US.
Growing in Wyoming
Wyoming weed growing is for the highly determined as it is very risky in this state. You’d not only need to be discrete about growing; but you’d also have to be discrete about consuming. If this is what you want to learn how to do, download the free marijuana grow bible. It has instructions on how to grow in places like Wyoming, where growing any amount of weed is a $1000 fine and jail time.
There aren’t many people in Wyoming, even though it is the 10th largest state in the country. Most of that land is used for mining, reservations, and national parks. A large amount of the people, (25%), live in the capital city of Cheyenne. The rest of the population lives in rural areas and small towns.
This is an ideal environment for a technique called guerilla growing, which is discussed in the Marijuana Grow Bible. The vastly rural environment may also explain their marijuana laws. Whereas many states have made changes to their marijuana laws over the last decade, Wyoming has not. There are no tax stamps, no medical CBD program and definitely no medical marijuana program. With so much marijuana legislation going on around them, this seems a bit surprising.
Thankfully, the marijuana laws in Wyoming aren’t particularly strict. They give first-time offenders a second chance. There is hope for the small time hobbyist.
Wyoming is known as the Buffalo state, but it is also known as the equality state. There are currently no buffalo in Wyoming, and they arrest people who use marijuana. Where did the buffalo go? They probably headed south to Colorado.
