BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A group that wants to legalize recreational marijuana in North Dakota has submitted paperwork to the state to begin the approval process.

If approved by the secretary of state, the group would need to gather 15,582 signatures by July 11 to get the measure on the ballot for the general election in November.

The proposed measure would allow any person over the age of 21 to use limited amounts of marijuana and purchase products from registered establishments in North Dakota.

A similar effort failed in 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic hampered the group’s signature-gathering.
