The South Dakota House and Senate have agreed on the maximum number of cannabis plants medical marijuana patients can grow in their homes.
Voters in 2020 approved a constitutional amendment that allows medical pot but puts no limit on homegrown plants, leading to this year’s efforts to adopt a limit.
The Senate proposed a maximum of 3 flowering and 3 non-flowering plants, while the House wanted to do away with homegrown cannabis entirely.
The compromise both chambers agreed on Wednesday limits the number of plants to 2 flowering and 2 nonflowering. The measure now goes to Gov Kristi Noem, an opponent of marijuana, for her signature.
