South Dakota lawmakers pass limit on homegrown medical pot

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota lawmakers have passed a proposal to limit the number of cannabis plants that medical marijuana patients can grow in their homes.

The House and Senate have debated for weeks what limits to place on the number of cannabis plants that may be grown in homes after a voter-passed law placed no limit on homegrown plants.

The Senate proposed a limit of three flowering and three non-flowering plants, while the House wanted to do away with homegrown cannabis entirely.

Both chambers agreed to limit the number of plants to two flowering and two nonflowering.
