If you believe in something, then take a stand, organize, and vote for it. If you get enough votes, you will succeed in your mission. Recently, this is exactly what the good people of South Dakota did when it came to cannabis legalization. South Dakotans wanted legal cannabis, so they used the democratic process to realize their goal. They worked tirelessly to gather signatures, got the issue put on the ballot, and when the majority approved it; they succeeded in passing cannabis legalization in South Dakota. It was a victorious day for Americans there who took part in the vote. Unfortunately, this victory was short-lived, and would soon be destroyed by the very people elected to represent the citizens of South Dakota. Thomas Jefferson said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.” America is touted as one of the world’s greatest democracies, and all Americans learn early on to have faith in the democratic process. People elect political representatives to speak for them and represent their interests in the political arena. However, in the case of South Dakota’s elected representative Kristi Noem, who serves as both the governor and the state’s lone member of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is evident that she failed to accurately represent the people of South Dakota. Let’s look at what happened in South Dakota regarding cannabis legalization and what went wrong.
