  • SoDakNORML

    24594 Chokecherry Ridge Rd
    Hermosa, SD 57744

    We get about two calls a week from folks who got busted in South Dakota for violations of South Dakota's unconscionable "drug" laws. Most have been stopped for having west-coast license plates (apparently an uncodified violation in SoDak). Most have already said way too much to the arresting officer. Most call for legal advice. Our experience leaves us aghast at the lack of outrage among defense lawyers at the injustice perpetrated by the courts' acceptance of lies and illegal actions performed by arresting officers, as well as the barbaric nature of South Dakota law.

    Directions: From SD Hwy 79 south of Rapid City, turn east onto SD Hwy 40, then take Battle Creek Rd northwest to Chokecherry Ridge.
