South Dakota’s new medical marijuana law is changing less than a year after it went on the books.

Gov. Kristi Noem announced Friday she’d signed a series of cannabis-related measures passed earlier this winter by the state Legislature that modify statutes that govern South Dakota’s medical marijuana program.

From in-home cultivation to the process of getting a medical marijuana identification card through the Department of Health, the six bills the governor signed Friday are aimed at “implementing a safe and responsible medical cannabis program that is the most patient-focused in the country,” Noem said in a statement.
