Wyoming Will Ban Marijuana Substitute Delta-8; Burgeoning Industry’s Future Uncertain

The full effect of the new law is still unclear

Uncertainty surrounds Wyoming’s ban on delta-8 — a marijuana-like substance also called “diet weed” — which Gov. Mark Gordon signed into law March 7. 

Senate File 32 – Hemp-limitations on psychoactive substances aims to ban delta-8 and similar products in Wyoming, though its full effect is still unclear. Some speculate the law could even limit the availability of certain CBD products in Wyoming. 

There was no fanfare around the signing, just a notation on the governor’s list of signed legislation. The law is expected to lead to closures and layoffs at the hemp, smoke and vape shops that sprung up across the state in recent years, though many lawmakers expressed hope that it would make Wyoming safer.Expand article logo

Headshop owners reached by WyoFile said they’re working with lawyers to decide what to do next, including filing potential lawsuits or determining whether the ban effective July 1 will close their shops.
