Aug 07, 2017 , ,


New Approach South Dakota has 90 days to collect the remaining signatures needed to place marijuana initiative measures on the 2018 ballot.

Two petitions are being circulated — one seeks to legalize marijuana for medical uses and the other to legalize certain amounts of marijuana for adult use and to regulate and tax marijuana businesses.

Signatures are tied to the number of votes cast in the state’s most recent gubernatorial election, so each petition needs at least 13,871 signatures by November 2017 to make it on the November 2018 ballot.

To read the petitions and for more information about adding your signature, check out New Approach South Dakota’s website.

  1. Many Years Ago, I Knew A Man, With Absolutely No Criminal Record, That Was Driving Eastbound On Interstate 90 Back To Minnesota.
    A South Dakota Highway Patrol Officer Illegally “Profiled” This Man, And Pulled Him Over On A Traffic Stop For No Legal Reason. Sticking His Head Inside The Open Passenger Window, And Then Smelling Un-burnt Marijuana, The Officer Arrested The Man.
    He Sat In Jail For 4 Long Months Waiting For The Court Trial. In Court, The Intelligent, Understanding Judge Dismissed The Case, And Cursed-Out The Officer In Court At Trial, On The Record.
    The Officer Was Officially Reprimanded, And Almost Fired From His Job. (This wasn’t the first time the officer has been accuse of this — the Judge was getting fed-up with the officer’s unlawful conduct).
    The Innocent Man Did Lose His Job, Lost His Apartment, Lost All His Personal Property In His Storage Locker, Ruined His Personal Credit Rating, And Got A Negative Mark On His Clean Criminal Record (although the charges were dropped).
    All In The Name Of The Ridiculous War On Drugs!
