Evanston – The newest and latest way to illegally use marijuana is for a kitchen chemist to make marijuana wax. Marijuana "wax" is more than 80% pure THC which is the active ingredient in marijuana, compared to 20% to 30% in the marijuana leaves.
A 56 year-old resident from the State of Virginia has been arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and felony possession of a controlled substance in plant form following a traffic stop 40 miles west of Evanston on eastbound Interstate 80.
Larry Betterton was stopped for a speeding violation on December 13th and was found to be transporting over 13 pounds of marijuana with a street value of approximately $80,040.00. Troopers also discovered four large patties of marijuana "wax" worth approximately $11,104.00.
Numerous vaporizers were also found with the marijuana wax.
Since a final destination of the marijuana and the marijuana wax was to occur in the State of Virginia the Wyoming Highway Patrol has requested assistance from Special Agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
Wyoming law enforcement authorities are working with their counterparts in Virginia on follow up investigations into this illegal trafficking case.Last Updated on Tuesday, 17 December 2013 12:28

If you have ever been to the lower level of the Courthouse you have probably noticed the drab, institutional white walls lining the long corridors. Well, things are starting to look a little brighter now. Recently, the County’s Halls of Art Committee was reconvened; and they are on a mission – adding color and character to the interior of the Courthouse.
“After a short walk around the Courthouse, the committee agreed we needed to do something about the lack of color on the lower level”, said Carol Seeger, Chairman of Halls of Art Committee. “After some thought and discussion, the committee felt any art projects downstairs would be best served if youth from the Campbell County Juvenile Probation and Juvenile Diversion programs were included”, continued Seeger. Thus began the idea for the mural which now graces the halls downstairs.Last Updated on Monday, 16 December 2013 06:05 Read more: Campbell County Courthouse Adds Some Color
