South Dakotans possessing edible marijuana products will continue to face a Class 5 felony if they're caught. A bill designed to equalize punishments failed in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The bill's sponsor says the intoxicants in edibles is the same as in leaf marijuana, but opponents say it's more highly concentrated.
