South Dakotans will vote this year on whether to legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 years and older.

Secretary of State Steve Barnett says his office has validated a proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize marijuana for adults 21 and older and require the state Legislature to enact a hemp cultivation law.

Barnett says a petition had enough valid signatures to put the proposal on the November 3rd ballot.

South Dakota voters in November also will decide a measure to allow medical marijuana for patients with serious health conditions.
