  1. They don't give a fuck about the people, they just don't want competition against pill mills. South Dakota was hit hard by the opioid crisis, and I bet you big pharma donated (read: Bribed) republicans in that state.

  2. If you get caught smoking weed in South Dakota, you need to go to jail for stupidity. Iv'e been smoking weed for 45 years and it has never been legal, and I have never been in trouble with the law.

  3. It just goes to show you that politicians dont give a damn about how you vote, especially if its against their interests. Republicans did the same thing in FL when the majority said that former felons should get their voting rights back.

  4. The issue would be, Kyle, with that supremacy clause, there does have to actually be a conflict. There is no federal law prohibiting the legalisation of drugs. There is a federal prohibition of drugs, though. There might be a reason though why it IS isnt constitutional under that state constitution. Constitutional amendments usually need a two thirds majority. The majority was 54% here, so that would explain it.

  5. Federal law doesn't override state law. Where state law is unconstitutional federal law must override it. Otherwise state law always wins. That's state sovereignty. I believe your argument that schedule I being federal overrides states rights on this issue is incorrect as this isn't an issue of constitutionality.

  6. Time for the South Dakota Voters to make “another” Referendum Vote and “cross those T’s & dot those I’s”. So no Right Wingers and or Corporate Lobbyists can use Technicalities to destroy such !!!

  7. How stupid is South Dakota? It's so stupid it failed to legalized something that would make living in that piece of shit state bearable. Also, do we really need two Dakota's? zero would be enough, lets seel them to Canada!

  8. Many times the argument I hear from people against legalizing at the federal level or in general is that pot is a “gateway drug”. The only thing weed is a gateway to is feeling good and junk food. And yes, I’m aware the the junk food line is from Half Baked.

  9. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O71AeGnWdR4 Trump has been acquited twice, so many endless liberal tears are flowing you can bathe in them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnzJNNY5hQI AOC destroys her own public image as she is caught lying http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkf0o4Y8d3s Trump exposes the progressives as the neo-liberals that they are. 😀 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96HNQ31jd9A bernie's mittens goes out of business cuz of high taxes (bernie's own policies put the business out of business) hahahaha

  10. Federal Gov: we need to have restrictions in place on guns because they're falling into the hands of violent people.
    SD Republicans: The federal government is overreaching and we refuse to obey your laws. States should make decisions for themselves.
    Voters: ok, Let's legalize MJ
    Republicans: Well, the state can't override the Federal govt laws.

  11. “…marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest, therapeutically active substances known to man.”
    –Francis Young (DEA’s own Judge 1988)

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”

    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

    “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana… We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”

    – Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."

    “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”

    – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author & commentator)

    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."

    – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Cosmologist, Astrobilologist, author & science communicator)

    “You bet I did -— and I enjoyed it.” ….when asked if he had ever smoked marijuana.

    – Michael Bloomberg (New York City Mayor)

    "Studies have consistently failed to establish the existence of a link between the harshness of a country’s drug laws and its levels of drug use."

    – Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

    "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"

    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?”

    “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit … unnatural?”

    -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

    "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."

    – Terence McKenna (American ethnobotanist, psychonaut, author, advocate for responsible use of natural psychedelic plants)
