In what promises to be great fun, Hot Springs photographer, Libertarian, and marijuana advocate Bob Newland has filed a statement of organization for a ballot question committee.
Its name: Consistent South Dakota.
Its mission: “We intend to bring So. Dak. law into closer adherence [to] common sense. The state should not profit from the legal transfer of two deadly drugs, while punishing the transfer of benign herbs.”
A judge punished Newland in 2009 for possessing what he would call benign herbs by putting Newland in prison for 45 days and ordering him to remain publicly silent on medical marijuana for a year.
Newland’s ballot question committee filing now suggests he will take on a role as an anti-drug warrior. This should be fun.
