Marijuana Legalization Initiative Approved For South Dakota Ballot

The voter-approved Amendment A was struck down in court last year

Election officials say a measure legalizing recreational marijuana in South Dakota will be on the ballot in November.

Secretary of State Steve Barnett said the petition for an initiated measure legalizing possession, use, and distribution of marijuana was validated and filed by his office Wednesday. The measure will be titled Initiated Measure 27 and appear on the 2022 General Election ballot on Nov. 8.
