Holds office State Senate District 7
SF 407 - An act relating to marijuana, including the manufacture, delivery, and possession of marijuana, providing fees, providing penalties, and including effective date provisions
"Nineteen states now regulate marijuana like recreational alcohol,” Sen. Jackie Smith, a Democrat from Sioux City, said in support of Bolkcom’s amendment. “We’re surrounded by them. And it was the voters in South Dakota that spoke during the 2020 elections to approve of marijuana use for adults. So I think giving voters a voice on this is what they want.” (4/19/22)
State Sen. Jackie Smith, D-Sioux City, said her district is in the tri-state area, which borders South Dakota.
Marijuana will be legal there starting July 1.
“I don’t want to see Iowa money leave the state and go to another state,” Smith said. (1/6/21)
