Cannabis right now is illegal in South Dakota for both medicinal and recreational purposes. They also criminalize ingestion of cannabis, meaning that if you test positive you could be found guilty of a misdemeanor offense. It's time those rules change so that they can stop filling up cells with peaceful people.
And those changes might be coming soon.
Cannabis changes in South Dakota are coming up on the ballot in November.
There are two potential cannabis changes being proposed for November and the other would propose legalization for adults 21 and over, being allowed to possess up to an ounce.
Spending thousands on every cannabis arrest.
Cannabis Market Worth More Than GDP
If those few states that have upcoming cannabis initiatives in November, like South Dakota and others, make the neccessary changes then that could mean billions more flooding into the American cannabis market.
One recent poll found that roughly 60 percent of voters are ready for a change.
Even more, at least 70 percent, support a medical cannabis program to be established.
There is a great deal of support for cannabis legalization and much of that effort has been fueled by the efforts of grassroots cannabis activists, many of which are patients.
