How South Dakotans feel about recreational marijuana, plus the cost of student loan forgiveness

Borrower thinking about student loans.
Hanna Barczyk for NPR

On today's show …

A poll in July showed that support for the legalization of recreational marijuana for adults in the state has decreased. We go break down the data with South Dakota Newswatch's Bart Pfankuch.

We also meet the candidates for state house and senate for the 2022 election. Gary Leighton, a Democrat, is running for state representative in District 2.

Plus, we chat with the Dakota Political Junkies. Lisa Hager and David Wiltse join the show to discuss student loan forgiveness and the ethics board in South Dakota looking into potential misconduct by Governor Kristi Noem.

And On Call with the Prairie Doc® returns for its 21st season. Dr. Kelly Evans gives us a preview.
