The South Dakota Obscenity Statutes Initiative, also known as Initiative 3, was on the November 7, 1978 ballot in South Dakota as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have repealed existing state criminal law and procedure regarding obscenity offenses and replaced them with a broader prohibition on the receipt, publication and dissemination of obscene materials. The measure also would have placed the highest priority on the hearing and disposition of obscenity cases.[1][2]
