Drug Asset Civil Forfeiture
SDCL 34-20B-70 provides that certain property is subject to forfeiture when it is being used for the possession or distribution of controlled substances or marijuana. A vehicle is subject to forfeiture if it is used to facilitate the transportation, possession or concealment of any illegal controlled substance or eight ounces or more of marijuana. Furthermore, any asset is subject to forfeiture if it is proceeds of the distribution of controlled substances or marijuana. The vehicles and other assets are then used by law enforcement or are sold and deposited into the drug control fund. The drug control fund is used to fund drug enforcement programs throughout the state.
