The sale of medical marijuana is yet to commence in South Dakota, and recreational marijuana remains illegal. However, the sale of medical marijuana is scheduled to begin by November 2021.

How is Marijuana Taxed in South Dakota?

The sales of medical marijuana in South Dakota are scheduled to commence in November 2021. The state plans to impose an ad valorem excise tax (retail tax) and sales tax on the purchases of marijuana. The state fixes a 15% cannabis excise tax on retail marijuana sales. The cannabis excise tax is applicable to cater for the negative externalities (costs of the damages done to the health of other people in the surrounding). Negative externalities in the consumption of marijuana are determined by the level of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana) or the weight dispensed. The cannabis excise tax is also to cater for the costs internalized due to the consumption of marijuana. Kim Malsam-Rysdon, Secretary of South Dakota Department of Health, said in June 2021 that the sales tax on medical marijuana in South Dakota would be 4.5% of the retail price once legalized. This is added to the final purchase price that the consumer is required to pay.
