Law enforcement officials in Teton County, Wyoming announced today that they would not press charges against a Montana woman that was briefly held in jail and charged with felony possession of liquid cannabis. Wyoming has some of the strictest cannabis laws in the United States and has even gone so far as to remove hemp-based CBD oil products from grocery stores in the state. According to the Jackson Hole News & Guide, Anita Maddux was initially arrested on July 8, 2018, for not having a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration, or insurance.

In a statement, Teton County Deputy Prosecutor Clark Allan said that he would not pursue charges against Maddux for cannabis possession, citing a lack of evidence.
