New Approach South Dakota is pushing to legalize medical and recreational cannabis in the Mount Rushmore State.
South Dakota voters could boost funding to teachers and reduce the state's sales tax burden by supporting a ballot measure aimed at legalizing marijuana for recreational use.
Supporters of a ballot measure aimed at legalizing small amounts of marijuana for medical use filed a complaint Tuesday claiming the South Dakota Secretary of State's office didn't do enough to prove petition signatures were illegitimate before disqualifying the measure.
New Approach South Dakota is collecting signatures for a proposal to make medical marijuana legal.
The initiative would appear on the 2016 ballot if supporters can collect enough signatures by Nov. 9.
