PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — A Day County resident acquired the primary medical marijuana card issued by the state of South Dakota.
On Thursday the South Dakota Medical Hashish Program introduced “the primary medical hashish affected person playing cards have been printed and issued.”
A information launch quotes Geno Adams, South Dakota’s Medical Hashish Program Administrator.
“At the moment marks the fruits of months of arduous work in preparation for the kickoff of a responsive and environment friendly medical hashish program for eligible South Dakotans,” Adams stated within the launch.
The discharge says the primary card being issued met a deadline set from medical hashish regulation voters handed overwhelmingly in 2020.
The South Dakota Medical Hashish Program thanked “unwavering dedication of Authorities Noem and the South Dakota Division of Well being to ship a protected and accountable medical hashish program.”
In July, Native Nations Hashish on the Flandreau Santee Sioux Reservation opened for folks with tribal issued medical marijuana playing cards.
Ned Horsted, Government Director of the Hashish Business Affiliation of South Dakota, informed KELOLAND Information no cultivation licenses have been granted by the state right now, so there’s no enterprise rising marijuana for medical use proper now.
