Wyoming: Medical Group Against Medical Marijuana Proposal

Wyoming- The Wyoming Medical Society has come out against a possible ballot initiative that would legalize medical marijuana in the state.

The organization counts more than 700 physicians and physician assistants across the state as its members.

In a recently published position paper, it cites concerns that legalizing medical marijuana at the state level would subvert the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's drug approval process.

Medical Society spokesman Tom Lacock says that the group consulted with many Wyoming medical professionals and the Colorado Medical Society in deciding to oppose the proposal.

The Wyoming chapter of National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws must collect 25,673 signatures of registered voters by Feb. 8 to get the question on the 2016 general election ballot.
