US (SD): Vermillion city council approves fees for MMJ start-ups

The Vermillion City Council agreed Monday to a set of various fees for anyone who wants to begin a medical cannabis establishment within Vermillion’s city limits. It also agreed that part of that fee structure should be based on the population of the city and be established on a per capita basis.

Stone Conley, assistant to the city manager, reviewed what has taken place over nearly the past two years to make the sale of medical cannabis possible in South Dakota.

State voters approved Initiated Measure 26 in November 2020, a measure that provides for the sale of medical cannabis in South Dakota as of July 1, 2021. The initiated measure provides municipal governments the ability to participate in the process for licensing, regulating, and establishing fees for medical cannabis establishments.

Conley reminded the City Council members that it passed a city ordinance last May that allows the city to establish various licensing and application fees regarding medical cannabis establishments.
