South Dakota Attorney General Misinforms Voters PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 27 September 2006
Active Image The only statewide medical marijuana initiative this November will be in South Dakota. Attorney General Larry Long, unhappy about the prospects of the initiative winning, is attempting to thwart the election by including misinformation on the ballot language.  The Marijuana Policy Project, threatening to sue, points out the last sentence of the Attorney General's explanation, "…is flat wrong, in addition to being biased. The federal courts have already ruled that physicians cannot be prosecuted or have their licenses stripped from them just for recommending the medical use of marijuana." If not criminally illegal, it is clearly ethically wrong for an Attorney General to lie to the voters of his state.
