SD Legislature Settles On Maximum Of 4 Homegrown Plants For Medical Pot Patients


    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.
