(Pierre, SD) — Governor Kristi Noem says South Dakota needs a year before a medical marijuana program is ready for implementation. Voters overwhelmingly approved legalization of medical marijuana last November. State law provides that laws passed by voters must take effect by July following the election but Governor Noem says she’s asking lawmakers to extend that time period. She says it will take extra time to ensure that an equitable and effective medical marijuana program can be launched.
