Cannabis should be legalized, regulated, and taxed like many other profitable commodities in South Dakota, according to the state legislature. Residential voters seem to be in agreement, with a new poll showing that most South Dakotans disapprove of Gov. Kristi Noem’s current approach to cannabis legalization. A group of lawmakers who’ve spent the last few months investigating cannabis policy made the comments during a recent meeting. The team, which consists of proud members of the Marijuana Interim Study Committee, recently celebrated the completion of a study that kicked off last spring. The meeting saw committee members formally adopt a cannabis legalization recommendation to be put under the noses of the legislative panel. If the recommendation is approved by the full legislature, the state’s prohibitive stance on marijuana consumption, cultivation, and sale would officially come to an end. “I’m not a supporter of marijuana but I’m trying to make sure that if we’re going to have it, we’ve got a good, solid regulatory system that is in the middle somewhere,” said co-chair of the committee, Republican Hugh Bartels.
