Wyoming is a harsh place when it comes to marijuana. Reefer madness has been alive and well in Wyoming for a long, long time. However, there appears to be some light growing at the end of the tunnel. At least one politician from Wyoming is willing to stand up for what’s right and expressed his support for medical marijuana in Wyoming.
According to Public Pulse:
The topic of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes came up recently on our Public Pulse news talk show, during a conversation led by Host Kim Love with state Senator Bruce Burns of Sheridan and Representative Rosie Berger of Big Horn.
Love started the conversation by asking what would be the problem with having marijuana available through a pharmacy, by prescription. Burns said he supported the idea, based on a personal experience with a family member. But when Berger was asked to weigh in, she said she’d need more information.
Kudos to Senator Bruce Burns. I know it’s not easy going on the record in Wyoming supporting medical marijuana. On the flip side, shame on Representative Rosie Berger for trying the oldest trick in the book for medical marijuana opponents – the stall. If you don’t know about marijuana’s undeniable medical benefits by now, it’s likely because you have tried as hard as you can to cling to failed policies of the past. Saying ‘I need more information’ is basically the same as saying ‘I do not support it’ in my book.
