ACC has until July 6, 2012, to collect 62,507 signatures from registered voters to qualify the proposal for the November 2012 general election ballot. The proposal would make it legal for people who are sick and in pain or dying to use and grow marijuana if they have a prescription to do so. Medical marijuana would be distributed by nonprofit dispensaries statewide and regulated by the state department of health.
