SIOUX FALLS, SD -
When South Dakota voters go to the polls on November 2, they will decide whether people with debilitating medical conditions should be able to legally smoke medical-grade marijuana to ease their symptoms. Initiated Measure 13 is one of four ballot issues to be decided.
According to results of the KELO-TV/Argus Leader Campaign 2010 poll, the majority of South Dakotans are against the proposed law. Of the 800 registered voters who took part, 62 percent say they plan to vote no on Initiated Measure 13. Just under a third of participants, 32 percent, say they support the law change. Only 6 percent are undecided.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
