- Did you know that there are actually three different ways you can be charged with drug possession in South Dakota? One of those ways is particularly unique to the state -- which may be why it ties (along with Wyoming and South Carolina) for the highest number of drug arrests in the nation.
Most people are familiar with the first way you can end up with a drug charge: You get caught with actual drugs in your possession. South Dakota is notoriously rough on drug offenders. Even a small amount of marijuana can lead to a $2,000 fine and a year in jail.
