Controlled Substances


Most controlled substances are designated by Wyoming State Statute in W.S. 35-7-1001, et seq., also known as the Wyoming Controlled Substances Act of 1971. The Wyoming Legislature recognized the necessity to schedule substances via the rule making process of the State of Wyoming. They designated the Wyoming Attorney General the "Commissioner of Drugs and Substance Control" pursuant to W.S. 35-7-1003. Additionally, they created an "Advisory Board of Drugs and Substances Control" pursuant to W.S. 35-7-1005. The Advisory Board consists of the Director of the Department of Health or his designee, and the Executive Director and the Senior Inspector of the Wyoming State Board of Pharmacy. The Legislature further directed that the Advisory Board and Commissioner follow the requirements of W.S. 35-7-1011 when scheduling substances.
