Communications from the Public: Casey Cook addressed the Council with his concerns about the State of SD legalization proceedings for medical and recreational marijuana, citing a Cracker Barrel meeting with District 34 Representative Mike Derby. According to Cook, this meeting focused on the economic benefits of the legalization of marijuana; and the need for rapid legislation to prepare required policy for implementation of taxable sales of marijuana. Cook again reiterated to Council his Colorado experience with legalization of marijuana, the promised economic benefits to schools that never happened; and the unfunded additional costs incurred by local governments to police and regulate the marijuana dispensaries and recreational users. Further, there is no approved testing method to determine impairment level of “persons” that participate with marijuana use
