PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s Senate has passed a spate of bills to put lawmakers’ mark on the state’s new voter-passed medical marijuana law.
Several of the bills approved by the Senate would ease access to medical pot for some patients. But House Republican lawmakers are moving in the opposite direction. On Monday, they passed a proposal that would bar patients from growing cannabis plants at home, setting up a collision with a Senate bill that seeks to cap the number of homegrown plants.
Legislators this year are honing in on a law passed by voters in 2020. They are bringing over 30 bills addressing the medical marijuana program.
