Legalization Of Recreational Marijuana In South Dakota Now Up To Voters

SB3 passed the Senate but did not make it out of the House

South Dakota voters will have to decide whether recreational marijuana becomes legal in the state. 

Senate Bill 3, which would have legalized its use, passed the Senate but did not make it out of the House. 

The bill was revived briefly Wednesday through a legislative process called “smoking out,” which allows the House to consider bills that die in committee. House members killed the bill for the last time Thursday. The bill narrowly passed the Senate last month, 18-17. 

South Dakota voters approved a referendum in November 2020 that would have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. The South Dakota Supreme Court struck down the amendment a year later, saying the amendment should not have addressed more than one subject as it also mentioned medical marijuana.
