TRIPP, S.D.(WNAX)- The Marijuana Interim Study Committee of the South Dakota legislature held a marathon session this week to come up with proposals for medical and recreational uses of marijuana.
Committee member, Representative Caleb Finck of Tripp, says it was a long process.
Finck says the medical cannabis program is a hybrid of how many other states operate.
Finck says the focus was still on medical cannabis.
The committee also agreed on a plan to legalize adult use marijuana and tax it. All the proposals will go to the 2022 legislative session.
Finck says there was multiple opinions.
Finck says a bill legalizing adult use of marijuana could move to the full legislature.
Finck says if adult use marijuana is approved, there would be less need for a medical marijuana program.
The proposals move on to the Executive Board, which is scheduled to meet on November 17th.
