Please note: Your donation to the Marijuana Policy Project Foundation South Dakota Legal Defense Fund is tax-deductible.
Background: On November 3, 2020, South Dakota voters approved Amendment A with 54% of the vote. Amendment A legalizes, regulates, and taxes marijuana for adults 21 and over.
Later that month, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem launched a taxpayer-funded lawsuit to overturn Amendment A on legal grounds. The Amendment A legal team is working very hard to ensure that we put forth the strongest possible defense of Amendment A in the South Dakota Supreme Court, which will decide the case.
While Gov. Noem is using public funds for her lawsuit, we do not have the same luxury. Please donate what you can today. We must ensure that our legal defense is fully funded. Otherwise, Gov. Noem may succeed in her efforts to repeal the will of the people.
