MORE:: Early Voting is Underway in South Dakota for the 2022 Election

Political candidates are campaigning across the state to earn voters' support for the 2022 Election. Jamie Smith has made it his mission to connect with all South Dakota voters to get his name out to the public. He's even encountered some voters with unique requests. Apparently, while Jamie was out campaigning in Watertown, a potential voter offered Jamie a blunt.

A voter seriously offered Jamie to smoke a joint with him during the 4th of July Parade in Watertown. Jamie Smith shared this true story on an upcoming Sunday Focus episode. Did Jamie turn down the offer? Well...he did initially say no to the opportunity. However, it sounds like Jamie would be open to the idea if recreational marijuana becomes legal. Jamie simply told the voter, "Let's make it legal first."

Listen to the full story from Jamie Smith in this small audio clip for this new episode. You have to hear it to believe it.

Sunday Focus airs every Sunday on all Results/Townsquare Media radio stations. These episodes are also podcasts, which can also be downloaded wherever you get your podcasts from.

Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon and Townsquare Media Sioux Falls

Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon 2022 Presented By Jerry's Auto Sales: Sept 29 and 30

For fifteen years Result-Townsquare Media Sioux Falls has been helping raise money to help fight childhood cancer.

Sadly, more than 11,000 children will be diagnosed with various forms of cancer this year. Instead of being able to just be a kid, these children will be learning about the serious experiences of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hospital or clinic visits.

The money raised through Dining for Kids and the 2022 Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon stays in the Sioux Falls area.
