Frequently Asked Questions
As South Dakota’s medical marijuana program is yet to be established, prices are not available as of yet.
Anyone with a debilitating medical condition may qualify for a medical marijuana card and certificate in South Dakota. Under Measure 26, a debilitating medical condition means:
“A chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe, debilitating pain; severe nausea; seizures; or severe and persistent muscle spasms, including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis.”
Under the measure, the Department of Health could add additional qualifying conditions.
South Dakota does have telehealth services, but there is no specific wording on whether or not medical marijuana evaluations will be able to take place online as of yet.
Probably. As the medical marijuana program in South Dakota hasn’t been fully established as of yet, we cannot give specific details on the application process.
In South Dakota, you can get a medical marijuana card for a minor with parental/guardian consent. Medical marijuana has been proven to be effective for many conditions suffered by children. The Leafwell providers understand this and frequently work with parents to help them get their children the medical care they need.
The South Dakota medical marijuana program is yet to be established, so we cannot say for certain if telehealth services will be extended to medical marijuana in South Dakota yet.
Patients registered to cultivate marijuana at home can grow three plants at minimum, or another amount as prescribed by a physician.
Yes, we do. All of the doctors who work with Leafwell are licensed physicians within South Dakota and experienced medical marijuana doctors. We’re committed to working with physicians who understand the value of medical cannabis and can help people interested in trying medical marijuana and providing medical support and guidance.
As the medical marijuana program and cannabis dispensaries are not functional yet, it is not possible to buy medical or recreational cannabis in South Dakota as of yet.
The medical marijuana program has not been fully established in the state of South Dakota, so we cannot give you a precise outline of what takes place at each stage of the evaluation yet.
The current Measure states that a patient may possess up to 3 ounces of cannabis flower.
South Dakota medical marijuana certificates are valid for one year. When you use Leafwell to obtain your certificate, we’ll send you a reminder email one month before your card is due to expire to make sure you have plenty of time to submit your renewal application.
You must be at least 18 years of age in order to apply for a Medical Marijuana Card in South Dakota.
Leafwell requires the following documents for your online visit:
– Photo ID (e.g., driver’s permit/license, state ID, or U.S. passport)
– Proof of address (e.g., utility bill, mortgage, rental lease, bank statement)
– Medical records (e.g. patient history, doctor’s notes, prescription information/history, imaging/scan results)
On November 3, 2020, South Dakota legalized by medical and recreational marijuana. Those aged 18 or over can qualify for medical marijuana, and those aged 21 or over may use cannabis for recreational purposes.
Some states accept out-of-state Medical Marijuana Cards. This is called reciprocity. The following states accept out-of-state medical cannabis cards:
– Alaska ^
– Arkansas *
– California ^
– Colorado ^
– Hawaii *
– Oklahoma *
– Oregon ^
– Puerto Rico
– Washington ^
– Washington D.C.
States marked with * require visitors to complete a visiting patient application for the duration of their stay.
States marked with ^ have adult use programs but do not accept out of state cards.
It is likely that a patient will be registered to the medical marijuana program. However, it is unlikely that this will be a public database. More will be known once the medical marijuana program is fully established.
