IM26– District 24 Sen. Mary Duvall update interim activity of the SD Legislature

IM26 by District 24 Senator Mary Duvall. IM26 passed by the voters last fall legalizes medical marijuana in South Dakota.

The measure itself contains several specific dates for implementing various portions of the law. It also creates an oversight committee to monitor implementation and to make recommendations to the Legislature and the Department of Health on possible improvements.
