Activists planning pot legalization ballot measure for 2010
Activists have launched a campaign to legalize marijuana in California, but the path could provide difficult.
An Oakland-based group filed papers with the state and now has to collect more than 430,000 signatures to get its measure on the November 2010 ballot. The campaign is being spearheaded by legalization activist Richard Lee. It's one of several efforts to legalize pot in California, including legislation being proposed in Sacramento.
According to the Lee's group, the proposal would allow people 21 and over to possess up to an ounce of the drug and also would allow property owners to grow a certain amount of pot.
