(KVHT) – The deadline for petitions to put measures on South Dakota’s 2024 ballot, including recreational marijuana legalization, is May 7th. Campaigners, like South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws, must collect 17,508 valid signatures from registered voters by then. With just over 12,500 signatures already gathered, the push is intensifying. The group’s Executive Director is optimistic despite past setbacks. The group argues that constituents’ voices, evidenced by a 70% support for medical cannabis in Measure 26, have been ignored for too long. Supporters are advocating for legalization, citing personal medical benefits and easier access across state lines. Despite fatigue among some supporters, group members urge continued engagement, believing that persistence will ultimately lead to favorable cannabis policies in South Dakota.
