Wyoming is among a dwindling number of states that haven’t approved marijuana in some form. Thirty-six states now allow medical marijuana, and 17 have approved recreational marijuana.
Organizers have submitted ballot initiative proposals to decriminalize marijuana and legalize medical marijuana. Voters haven’t approved a ballot initiative since 1992.
