Marijuana proponents again trying to get recreational marijuana on the ballot

Marjuana supports are running it back in South Dakota. On Friday Attorney General Marty Jackley’s office released an explanation of a proposed initiated measure which would legalize recreational marijuana. The proposed measure would allow 21-year-old and older individuals to possess, grow, sell, ingest and distribute marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia. Proponents will now need to get 17,509 valid signatures to get the amendment on the ballot. Voters approved recreational maijuana in 2020 with the passage of amendment A, but that law was struck down by the state supreme court on the grounds it violated South Dakota’s one issue clause. Since then proponents got recreational marijuana back on the ballot in 2022, in the form of IM 27 which failed with 53 percent of the vote saying no.
