Medical Marijuana remains a hot topic of discussion in the Mount Rushmore State since residents voted in favor of it last November. But it seems Governor Kristi Noem may be coming around to the issue.

Dakota News Now is also reporting the Governor is now expressing her support of medical marijuana after initially campaigning against it last year.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe will also be honoring other valid medical marijuana cards that have been issued in different areas throughout the country and world. Each medical marijuana license will cost the individual $50.
