A South Dakota judge on Monday struck down a voter-approved constitutional amendment that legalized recreational marijuana.

PIERRE, S.D. - A South Dakota judge on Monday struck down a voter-approved constitutional amendment that legalized recreational marijuana after Gov. Kristi Noem's administration challenged it.

Circuit Judge Christina Klinger ruled the measure approved by voters in November violated the state's requirement that constitutional amendments deal with just one subject and would have created broad changes to state government.

"Amendment A is a revision as it has far-reaching effects on the basic nature of South Dakota's governmental system," she wrote in her ruling.
