Which is a complete reverse from my entire childhood, wherein firecrackers were legal in Wyoming so you'd have to make the run up there to get them and then come home without the CSP catching you

Has the dispensary and private smoking lounge just outside Wyoming on I-25 gone up yet?

I got a star on my car and one on my chest,
A gun on my hip and the right to arrest
I'm the guy who's the boss on this highway
So watch out what you're doin' when you're drivin' my way
If you break the law, you'll hear from me, I know
I'm a-workin' for the state, I'm The Highway Patrol

Wyoming.
Or, as I used to call it, I-80.

I'm sure this is terrible news for the couple dozen people that live in Wyoming.

Brilliant plan. People from Wyoming can drive there, park, go inside and get high, and then drive home and get busted for DUI.

I wasn't aware Wyoming had a population. Never even *heard* of anyone from there.

Until now I figured Wyoming was just 'undeclared' land in the US and they slapped a name on it.

Did they import hookers and blackjack to make the place appealing to potential residents?

I'm so sick of this. I've lived in Colorado and Wyoming, now living again where I was born, hop, skip, and jump to Cheyoming, where men are men and sheep are scared.  I'm more concerned with the border war.  Laramie snucks..Colorado wins. Mostly.

And I LOVE Wyoming.

Sorry, too many marijuanas. How many marijuanas are there in an ounce anyways?

Yeah, those dang Colorado legal weed dealers are gonna wind up corrupting Wyoming's citizens, who have NEVER HAD ACCESS to pot ever before. Ever.

I was.

Also thought he was BSing so a google search led me to List of People from Wyoming.

It *appears* all Wyoming exports is Republicans...odd.
 
2014-01-05 06:23:22 PM
how about just dont get pulled over for something dumb.  they arent setting up stopping stations unless i missed that part in the article.  pot is not the cause of a stoner's stupidity, it just helps to identify them.

/heh, this just came to me

Or, they could just go smoke enough to not be impaired and a threat to other drivers.

Because people who can self-identify when they've had 'too much' are so farking common you can't piss without hitting the shoes of one.

Brilliant!

That is, however, what they do.

I spent a night in Cadiz, Ind. a went to the local mini-mart to get beer; turned out, it was a "dry" county. Asked where to get beer and the woman gave me directions to the county line.

Soon as you crossed the county line, it was bar, "we sell beer", "we sell beer", bar, and liquor store.
 
2014-01-05 06:27:26 PM
They've probably got all three Wyoming Highway Patrol cars staking out I-25 this month.
 
2014-01-05 06:27:27 PM
Maybe they should set up a checkpoint like the one for "agriculiture" when you drive from Vegas to LA.
 
2014-01-05 06:27:44 PM
How about buying it in CA, then sticking it in your glovebox in a sealed box, and don't speed, don't farking smoke it and drive, and obey the posted speed limits and traffic laws, therefore, not getting pulled over in the first place. But, there is always some douchebag who buys 12 lbs of it, and drives home at 120 mph, therefore guaranteeing that they get arrested.

Dispensary, private smoking lounge  and cheap motel.

Problem solved.
 
2014-01-05 06:30:16 PM
Yes I'm sure prior to legalization no Colorado marijuana was going into Wyoming.
 
2014-01-05 06:32:13 PM
Who would want to go to Wyoming, with or without weed?

An ounce is about 2 joints if you're the cop turning over to evidence.  Or maybe just a joint if he's carrying multiple boxes of donuts.

They'll need to recover fron their bongapocalypse first. By next week they'll only be able to ration out one joint per person.

They better enjoy it while they can, the IRS will come in and shut the dispensaries down in a year.  That seems to be the Feds way of dealing with this situation.

Fun fact: If Wyoming were a city, it would be #31, just barely ahead of Albuquerque, Tucson, and Fresno. It goes without saying that more people would rather live in Detroit than Wyoming, even with Detroit dropping to now less than Charlotte.

Pretty much it.  Bring a glass jar.  Seal it inside, wash off the outside (residual stuff from your hands).  Put it out of sight, or better yet, at the bottom of a cooler buried in ice, water and pop.  Then sit in the right lane with your cruise control set at the speed limit and wait until you get 2 states away before even thinking about it.  Remember, you're only driving home and you don't have anything, so don't be acting stupid or suspicious when the state patrol drives by.  Just let your cruise control do it's job.

This article is incorrect and shows great ignorance of how laws apply. This isn't an either/or proposition; you can get charged with BOTH possession AND being under the influence (12+6=18 months).

This is why the Internets makes my brain hurt sometimes.

To be fair Wyoming's economy is largely based off of meth.

So long as they pay their taxes, what complaint does the IRS have?
