From the Associated Press:
South Dakotans will be asked to vote on legalizing marijuana for use in treating pain, nausea and other health problems.
The secretary of state’s office has approved a petition seeking a statewide vote on the proposal in November.
A similar measure narrowly failed in the 2006 election, when it received 48 percent of the vote. But Reistroffer says support for medical marijuana has grown among South Dakotans in the past few years.
Fourteen states have legalized medical marijuana.
