Description: 

Senate Bill 150 would revise the penalty for possession of substances containing cannabis intended for consumption other than by smoking or inhalation.

ACLU position: 

The ACLU of South Dakota supports SB 150. We believe that it is wrong in principle for the government to criminalize what individuals do in private with their own bodies. Our country's war on marijuana is a colossal waste of resources, amounting in billions of lost taxpayer dollars and resources.
