TYNDALL, S.D. (AP) - Seventeen inmates at South Dakota's state prison in Springfield are charged with possessing marijuana.

Attorney General Marty Jackley said Thursday a Bon Homme County grand jury indicted each of the 17 on one felony count of possession and one misdemeanor count of ingesting an intoxicating substance.

They are inmates at the Mike Durfee State Prison, which primarily houses low and medium-security inmates.
