A Martin man who was part of a marijuana distribution network on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation has been sentenced to five years in federal prison.

Grover Lee Horned Antelope, 40, pleaded guilty to accepting marijuana for distribution from Abraham Romero. In October 2008, Horned Antelope picked up a one-pound package of pot for distribution.

Once he has completed his sentence, Horned Antelope will spend four years on supervised release.

Romero is scheduled for sentencing on May 17.

5 years for a plant that's legal in two states and decriminalized in dozens more...South Dakota needs to get with the times, and that means its CITIZENS need to get with the times. I completely expect us to be the last state in the union to legalize cannabis, this state is way too red and wayyyyy to overpopulated with hicks and beer-guzzling bumpkins.
