Wyo. State Patrol: Don’t bring pot here

Marijuana is legal in Colorado, but the neighbors to the north sent out a reminder Thursday: “Do not bring your Colorado-purchased marijuana into Wyoming.”

The Wyoming Highway Patrol put out a media release saying troopers have “no plans to increase patrols on highways near the state line to look for those transporting marijuana…from Colorado,” but the drug remains illegal in Wyoming and violators will be prosecuted.

“It will be business as usual for the troopers who always are on alert for any criminal activity,” the highway patrol said.

The release warned against driving stoned, which is also against the law in Colorado.

In addition, the highway patrol reminded, possession of drug paraphernalia is a violation of Wyoming law.
