South Dakota’s new medical marijuana law is changing less than a year after it went on the books.

Gov. Kristi Noem announced Friday she’d signed a series of cannabis-related measures passed earlier this winter by the state Legislature that modify statutes that govern South Dakota’s medical marijuana program.

From in-home cultivation to the process of getting a medical marijuana identification card through the Department of Health, the six bills the governor signed Friday are aimed at “implementing a safe and responsible medical cannabis program that is the most patient-focused in the country,” Noem said in a statement.

Here are the bills related to medical marijuana and cannabis that have been signed into law.

Senate Bill 19 changes the medical marijuana law to allow nursing homes, treatment center and mental health centers to implement restrictions on cannabis use within their facilities. Specifically, it protects those facilities from being forced to store and administer medical cannabis to clients and patients.

SB 21 adds language to the medical marijuana law that requires the health department provide written notice if they revoke a previously issued medical marijuana ID card. Before SB 21’s passage, a medical marijuana ID card could be revoked without any obligation to explain why. [Read More @The Argus Leader]
