The race for South Dakota secretary of state is centering around an election that occurred two years ago.

South Dakota voters will decide whether to legalize the possession and use of marijuana for adults, again. But the ballot measure does not approve the sale of the plant.

A driver given a warning ticket for speeding sued the Highway Patrolman who stopped him. A federal District Court judge found that the trooper did not violate the driver’s constitutional rights by searching the vehicle for drugs or prolonging the stop but held that it’s up to a jury to decide if the driver was indeed speeding.

Gas prices are once again declining in South Dakota. The average cost per gallon in the state is $3.65, down nearly $0.07 from last week, according to a GasBuddy survey.
