How Minnesota Marijuana Legalization Impacts South Dakota

(Sioux Falls, SD) — While it isn’t official yet, Minnesota is likely to legalize recreational marijuana. A bill that would legalize it has been sent to Governor Walz’s desk and he is expected to sign it into law before their legislative session ends on May 22nd. Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead says that South Dakota is prepared to uphold the law if people bring marijuana across the border. Communities close to the border with Minnesota may soon have access to recreational marijuana, but Sheriff Milstead said South Dakota law isn’t changing anytime soon. The use of marijuana for medical purposes is legal in both states. Milstead predicts that the state will see negative impacts of Minnesota’s decision on the roads based on statistics from other states.
