On June 30, 2015, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead announced that he was creating the Governor’s Marijuana Impact Assessment Council (GMIAC).

The Council has been charged with collecting and reviewing all available research and data in order to assess the impact on public health and safety in Wyoming from the possible legalization of medical and recreational use of marijuana in our state. This Council is to provide a report on the impact assessment prior to the next legislative session.

The Governor has appointed the following individuals to serve as Chairmen:

-  Tom Forslund, Director of the Wyoming Department of Health as the Chairman of the Council; 
- Mike Reed, Governor’s Policy Advisor on Impaired Driving as the Co-Chair; 
- Steve Butler, Research/Investigator for the Wyoming Statistical Analysis Center for the University of Wyoming as the Vice-Chair.

This site will be the primary means by which the members of the Council and Wyoming Department of Health administrative staff will communicate, be notified of meetings, reporting dates and the means by which other Council related information will be provided.

The first meeting of the GMIAC will be on Wednesday, July 29th, from 10:00 - 12:30 in Room 1699 of the Herschler Building (122 W. 25th St. Cheyenne, WY)
