North Dakota voters may be able to vote on whether they want to legalize recreational marijuana in the state this November.

A grassroots campaign led by groups such as Legalize ND and ND Legalization Initiative, among others, has collected 18,700 signatures that were submitted to the North Dakota Secretary of State this week.

Only 13,452 signatures were needed to get the measure on the ballot.

According to the Bismarck Tribune, the Secretary of State has until Aug. 13 to verify the number of signatures to determine if it’s on the ballot or not.

The bill would legalize the growth, possession, sale and use of marijuana for adults 21 years of age and older and would also expunge marijuana convictions from North Dakotans’ criminal records.
