[h1]Measure to legalize marijuana will be on California's November ballot[/h1] [h2]Supporters of the initiative collected well more than the 433,971 signatures needed for it to go before voters in the fall, again putting the state at the forefront of the nation's drug debate.[/h2]An initiative to legalize marijuana and allow it to be sold and taxed will appear on the November ballot, state election officials announced Wednesday, triggering what will probably be a much-watched campaign that once again puts California on the forefront of the nation's debate over whether to soften drug laws.
The initiative would allow adults 21 or older to possess up to an ounce for personal use.
The initiative would also allow adults to grow up to 25 square feet of marijuana per residence or parcel.
