SD Voters To Decide On Medical Marijuana

October 25, 2010, 10:10 AM

SIOUX FALLS, SD - South Dakota voters on Election Day will decide whether patients suffering from a debilitating medical condition should be allowed to legally smoke marijuana to ease their symptoms.

Supporters say it's a matter of compassion, and those dealing with the pain, nausea and muscle spasms from various diseases should have access to something that could help them.

Opponents say they share that compassion, but they're concerned that the proposed law would lead to increased use of pot by those with no medical need and make it too difficult for law enforcement.

Fourteen states have legalized medical marijuana.

A "Yes" vote supports legalizing marijuana for registrants and designees. A "No" vote is against the proposed law.
