It looks like Noem and gang are on the back foot.

MJ Biz report

A voter-approved medical marijuana program likely will be implemented in South Dakota as scheduled after efforts to stymie the program failed.

Gov. Kristi Noem and the majority of lawmakers from both chambers wanted to delay legalization and develop regulations, but they couldn’t agree on a compromise measure to do so before the end of the legislative session, according to the Argus Leader in Sioux Falls.

That means the voter-approved measure is likely to go forward as is, with a market launch expected in the summer of 2022.
