South Dakota voters will decide medical marijuana ballot question in 2020

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota voters will decide on legalizing medicinal marijuana in November next year after a petition to put the measure on the November ballot was validated by the state.

Secretary of State Steve Barnett announced on Thursday that the petition had enough valid signatures to be put on the ballot for the General Election in November.

The measure would allow patients with chronic or debilitating health conditions to use and possess up to three ounces of marijuana.

They would need to get a registration card from the state’s Department of Health.
