DENVER – Coloradans will get to decide this November if marijuana should be legalized for recreational use by adults.

Proponents of Initiative 30 have submitted enough signatures to place the issue on the ballot, the Colorado Secretary of State announced Monday.

The first petition drive came up 2,400 votes short, so supporters had to gather additional signatures to get the initiative certified.

If approved by voters, the so-called Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act of 2012 would make it legal for adults 21 and older to possess limited amounts of marijuana, and regulate the sale and taxation of pot much like alcohol.
