What is Initiated Measure 27?

Measure 27 is a proposal that will appear on the ballot in the November 8, 2022 general election. If the majority of South Dakotans vote “yes” on the measure, it will legalize the possession, use, and distribution of marijuana for so-called “recreational” purposes in South Dakota. A “no” vote will leave South Dakota’s laws unchanged.

The Catholic bishops of South Dakota are urging Catholics and all citizens to vote NO on Measure 27, due to the harms that legalizing marijuana will bring to individuals, families, and our state.
