US (SD): MMJ facilities approved in Lincoln County

Tuesday the Lincoln County Board of Commissions approved two more medical cannabis facilities. Each of which plans to grow and sell cannabis. The dispensary in Flandreau was the first to open its doors to medical cannabis patients in South Dakota. Now, more companies will be following suit.

“I think that we had two qualified individuals that came in and have filled out the necessary requirements and we granted them a license to grow cannabis or cannabis for medical purposes,” Jim Schmidt, a Lincoln County Commissioner said.

605 Cannabis is one of those approved businesses with plans for three facilities. “So we are going to do a 35 thousand square foot cultivation, product manufacturing, and a dispensary out there on the Canton exit,” Melissa Mentele, COO for 605 Cannabis said

Mentele was also one of the writers of IM 26, which made medical cannabis legal in 2020. She says it’s exciting to finally see progress in the state.
