WATERTOWN, S.D.–KWAT News has uncovered the names and locations of the three medical marijuana dispensaries that will operate in Watertown.

City Attorney Matt Roby says the three are:

–Dakota Dispensaries LLC (20 9th Avenue Southwest)

–Lion’s Den Dispensary (10 East Kemp Avenue)

–SSNC Inc. doing business as Midtown Dispensary ( 124 1st Avenue Northwest)

Roby says the medical marijuana sold at the dispensaries must be produced by licensed South Dakota manufacturers or cultivators.

In September 2021, the Watertown City Council established a cap of three dispensaries within the city limits.  Each dispensary paid a non-refundable application fee of $25,000. 

South Dakota voters approved the legalization of medical marijuana in a November 2020 vote (Initiated Measure 26) by a 70 percent to 30 percent margin.
