According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Wyoming who used marijuana in the past year is 43,000. Of the 43,000, 7,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 17,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 20,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 23,000. 3,000 were ages 12 to 17, 9,000 were 18-25 and 10,000 were age 26 or older.
The National Organization for the Marijuana Laws (NORML) agreed with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that Wyoming should decriminalize marijuana use as Colorado, Montana and Nebraska have done. The marijuana laws are putting thousands of people in the criminal justice system by crowding up jails and wasting billions of tax dollars when the law enforcement should be focusing on other serious crimes. The state of Wyoming has spent $9.1 million by enforcing marijuana laws in 2010 alone. The federal government has funded marijuana studies that have proven that marijuana does help relieve pain and suffering from those who have terminal diseases and still refuse to decriminalize it but it's ok to promote, sell and advertise alcohol and cigarettes which cause dangerous health problems, social problems and disastrous consequences? This does not make sense to many who are advocating to legalize marijuana in Wyoming.
