During the 2021 Legislative Session 478 bills were introduced not including resolutions or commemorations. The 2021 Legislative Session was dominated by discussions on Initiated Measure 26 (legalization of medical marijuana – passed in November with just under 70% voter support) which will be enacted on July 1, 2021, Amendment A (legalization of recreational marijuana, which is currently being appealed to the South Dakota Supreme Court) and $300+ million one-time money that came to the state, in part, from federal COVID-19 relief funding. The majority of the alcohol issues focused on expansion of certain license privileges.
