Effort To Bring Medical Marijuana To Public Vote Fails

Pierre, SD

Supporters of allowing medical marijuana in South Dakota have failed to bring the matter to a public vote.

A petition to put medical marijuana legalization on the November general election ballot was rejected because it didn't have enough valid signatures.

Secretary of State Shantel Krebs said a random sampling determined that the petition with about 15,000 names had only about 9,500 valid signatures - far short of the 13,871 required.

The rejection can be challenged in court.
