SACRAMENTO — California voters will decide in November whether to legalize recreational marijuana after the initiative qualified Tuesday for the ballot.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Secretary of State’s Office certified that a random sample showed sufficient signatures to place the measure before voters.

The initiative would allow people ages 21 and older to use, possess and transport up to one ounce of marijuana for recreational purposes and grow up to six plants, the Times reported.

Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon already allow recreational use of cannabis, and eight other states have similar measures on their ballots this year.
