DENVER (AP) — Marijuana legalization activists in Colorado are ready to turn in signatures to put the question on ballots this fall.

The Campaign To Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol says it will turn in some 160,000 signatures in favor of the ballot initiative. The measure would make pot possession legal in small amounts for adults over 21, without a doctor’s recommendation.

Colorado requires roughly 86,000 valid signatures to put the question before voters.

The state has 30 days to certify signatures and decide whether the pot measure will be on ballots. If approved, the marijuana question would be the first cleared for Colorado’s 2012 election.
