Matthew Schweich has started every Thursday morning for the past six months by logging onto the South Dakota Supreme Court’s opinion page and hitting the refresh button. Twenty-seven straight weeks, the campaign director for South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws (SDBML), a statewide ballot question committee based out of Sioux Falls, has been met by disappointment, as time and time again he finds that the five-justice court remains a no-decision on the constitutionality of Amendment A—the 2020 voter-approved adult-use cannabis ballot measure. In addition to being the SDBML campaign director, Schweich also serves as the deputy director of the reform organization Marijuana Policy Project (MPP).
