A group campaigning to put a marijuana legalization measure before California voters says it has enough signatures to qualify for the 2010 ballot.
Oakland medical marijuana entrepreneur Richard Lee said Monday the measure has far more than the nearly 434,000 signatures needed to make the November 2010 ballot.
Campaign organizers say they will submit the signatures to the California Secretary of State next month for validation.
The proposal would legalize possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for California adults 21 and older. Residents could cultivate marijuana gardens up to 25 square feet. Local governments would determine whether to permit marijuana sales within their boundaries.
