Not known for being a liberal state by any stretch, we may soon see how people on the left and the right in South Dakota respond to a proposal to decentralize away from D.C. – and legalize medical marijuana in the state.
An organization promoting the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes in South Dakota plans to turn in more than 29,000 signatures this week to bring the issue to a public vote.
Emmett Reistroffer of Sioux Falls, director of communications for the South Dakota Coalition for Compassion, said the organization will turn in the petitions Wednesday to the secretary of state’s office in Pierre.
It’s my opinion that those who support the Constitution should get behind this, because even if you want the plant to be illegal, keeping the status quo is requiring everyone else in the country to pay for enforcement in your state.
Sounds similar to many proposals coming out of D.C. these days, doesn’t it?
