New Approach South Dakota (NASD) is collecting signatures for a proposal to make medical marijuana legal! This ballot initiative will appear on the 2016 ballot if supporters can collect enough signatures by November 9. That’s only a week away!SouthDakota-StateSeal.svg

To help get the measure past the finish line, contact NASD’s Melissa Mentele at melmentele@yahoo.com.

If the proposal appears on the 2016 ballot and is approved by the voters, it would:

— Legalize the medical use of marijuana for patients with a medical practitioner’s certification and one of several listed conditions, including cancer, AIDS/HIV, seizure disorders, PTSD, and severe pain;
— Allow patients and their caregivers to possess up to three ounces of cannabis and grow six plants;
— Create a licensing system to provide patients with safe access to medical cannabis, allow businesses to process, dispense, and test medical cannabis products; and
— Prohibit public smoking and driving under the influence of marijuana.

The full measure can be viewed here. Support for compassionate medical marijuana policy is an urgent matter for some South Dakotans. We encourage residents to contact NASD to ask how you can help support the initiative.
