The Associated Press reports the Wyoming Supreme Court has rejected a Colorado man’s assertion that he should be allowed to possess marijuana in Wyoming.

Daniel Burns appeal to the high court turned on whether his use of medical marijuana was a legal prescription under Wyoming law, Bob Moen writes. The court rejected his assertion, finding that his Colorado doctor did not prescribe marijuana but provided a “recommendation,” a requirement under Colorado law.

Burns was arrested in March 2009 with over a pound of marijuana in Laramie County. Justice Michael Golden wrote the unanimous opinion in the case, 2011 WY 5, which can be read here.
