US (SD): Cannabis grower, retailer sues state over inspection report

The state of South Dakota is facing a new lawsuit stemming from an inspection that shut down a portion of a medical cannabis business. The lawsuit, filed by 605 Cannabis Cultivation and the makers of Badlands Products, alleges misapplication of the rules and heavy-handedness by the state.

They claim inspections are only to happen during business hours, but they were closed due to a blizzard, with little staff on hand. 605 also claims the state’s inspection report was inaccurate. While the legal process continues, customers are going without.

“For a period of about two weeks. Maybe a little bit longer, we did not have the edibles. People were frustrated. I had a lady who started to cry,” explained Warne.

In a statement, Melissa Mentele of 605 Cannabis maintains they were treated unfairly, saying, “As a company, we have chosen to protect the patients, the businesses, and the medical cannabis industry in our state by filing suit to ensure that the precedent set will not destroy patient access.”
