South Dakota’s first state-licensed pot dispensary ready to open
25 Jul 2022
HARTFORD, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - South Dakota is nearing another milestone for medical marijuana.
Unity Rd. in Hartford is gearing to open its doors on Wednesday, making it the first state-licensed cannabis dispensary in the state’s history. It’s been a long time coming since 70 percent of South Dakota voters said “yes” to cannabis for medicinal use in November 2020.
While tribal-governed Native Nations Cannabis opened in Flandreau 10 months ago, Unity Rd. is expected to be a historic landmark for many of the 1,600 people in the state who are qualified to purchase the once-illegal drug.
