State Legalization Roadblocks

And since the election New York, New Mexico, Virginia and Connecticut have passed adult-use sales through the state legislature and signed into law by the governor.


But I want to circle back to a couple of states: Even though over 74% of voters approved Mississippi’s medical cannabis Initiative 65, the state’s supreme court found it unconstitutional on May 14th.


And almost 70% of South Dakota voters approved adult-use Amendment A but it too was found unconstitutional by a state judge and is now in the state’s supreme court.


And over 54% of South Dakota voters approved medical Measure 26 but it was initially delayed in state legislature; however, the state has moved forward and claims it is on schedule for implementation.


So, even though the majority of voters are supporting and approving these measures and initiatives, it does not necessary mean they will be implemented.
