The initiative would allow people to cultivate up to 10 marijuana plants and possess up to 10 ounces. Smoking of marijuana would be permitted in any location that allows tobacco smoke.

The Wyoming chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is also attempting to place an initiative on the 2016 statewide ballot to legalize hemp and cannabis.
