Libertarian Party of South Dakota Endorses Three Ballot Initiatives:
New Approach South Dakota; SD Voice, CC4L
Rapid City— 8/28/19 — Today the Libertarian Party of South Dakota has officially
endorsed three ballot initiatives currently circulating in South Dakota: New Approach’s Medical
Marijuana initiative; SD Voice’s People Power petition, as well as Cannabis Consumers for
Liberty’s legalization petition.
We support all forms of cannabis reform in this state, as well as the right of all South
Dakotans to seek medical relief in such a manner. The Libertarian Party of South Dakota knows
that many local residents can benefit from such medication and that the State has refused to
address this issue in a reasonable time frame. Likewise, South Dakota’s State Legislature has
added quite a bit of bureaucratic red tape to the process of collecting signatures for ballot
initiatives and amendments. We feel that it is unnecessary and creates another barrier for
people to petition their Government.
All three initiatives come from grassroots organizations originating in South Dakota.
“When our legislature continually refuses to address certain measures they don’t like, or they
add unnecessary regulations to the petition process, then it is up to all of us to fight for our
Liberty,” said Greg Baldwin, Vice Chair of the LPSD.
