South Dakota legalized medical marijuana use in 2020 through Initiated Measure 26. Patients over the age of 18 with what the state calls a "debilitating medical condition" can apply for a state-issued medical marijuana card. The card allows them to purchase up to 3 ounces of cannabis flower every two weeks. Additionally, patients can register to obtain permission to cultivate up to 4 plants with no more than two flowering at a time. Despite medical use being legal, recreational marijuana is still totally illegal in South Dakota, and possession of non-medical marijuana can result in criminal prosecution.
