On today's show …

A special election will decide whether the state should increase the number of medical cannabis establishment licenses from 1 to twelve. Lee Strubingers speaks with the vice-chair of the Meade County Commission.

We meet the candidates for the state house and senate for the 2022 election. Jim Mehlhaff, a Republican, is running for state senate in District 24.

We also talk with the Dakota Political Junkies about potential ethics violations from Governor Kristi Noem.

And we sit down with songwriter and storyteller Eliza Blue for a Live Moment in Sound.
