Wyoming is within the upper Midwest where delta 8 THC legality goes back and forth based on which state that you’re in. However, Wyoming is actually even more behind. They have yet to legalize medical marijuana let alone recreational. Interestingly, you can carry up to three ounces and it is only a misdemeanor, most likely due to the states in-between states. Hearing this, you’d think that Delta 8 THC would be illegal. The state of Wyoming decided to make a change, rather than averting their eyes to the Delta-8 THC market—they took advantage of the opportunity. Wyoming has revised their state laws to match that of the Federal Farm Bill of 2018.
