The upper house of the South Dakota legislature has officially approved a bill to legalize adult marijuana use to block a vote expected in the autumn. According to the associated press, the Republican controlled South Dakota Senate passed the bill by one vote on Wednesday, indicating that there are still differences in the legalization of the state. The bill will now be submitted to the State House of Representatives, and its fate is almost uncertain given the conservative opposition to the sale of recreational marijuana. Although South Dakota voters easily approved the legalization of adult use by 54% in the 2020 election, a state police lawsuit overturned the initiative, led by Republican governor Christie norm.
