PHOENIX, Ariz. – There’s a new push to make marijuana legal for medical use in Arizona, and more than 150,000 people have left their signatures to put it on the November ballot.

Arizona voters may get to decide in November whether to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.

Supporters of a medical marijuana initiative submitted petition signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office to qualify the measure for the general election ballot.

The measure would allow people with certain medical conditions to have a small amount of marijuana if they have a doctor’s recommendation.

It would allow the creation of nonprofit marijuana dispensaries to sell the drug to approved patients.

Thirteen other states allow the possession of small amounts of marijuana for medical purposes. New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine signed a medical marijuana bill in January but it hasn’t yet become effective.
