Gubernatorial Candidate Supports Medical Marijuana

Gubernatorial Candidate Supports Medical Marijuana

A Third Party candidate for South Dakota governor is making the legalization of medical marijuana a main focus.

Independent candidate Michael Myers announced Saturday in Centerville that he feels the option of alternative medications should be a decision made by a patient and their doctor, not the state.

“We all know chemo therapy saves, we also know that chemo therapy kills, and I want them to sit down and have a conversation about alternatives,” Myers said.

Myers, who is in his upper 70s, says his age and resume are two things that make him right for the job. Myers’ campaign is confident they have enough petition signatures to be on the ballot in November.

Current governor Dennis Daugaard and Lora Hubbel are running on the Republican ticket and Democrat Joe Lowe has also put his name in for the governor's race.
