Legal marijuana supporters in North Dakota have achieved the necessary 13,452 valid petition signatures and have gotten recreational marijuana on the ballot infront of voters this November. 

Secretary of State Al Jaeger made the announcement Monday. 

The measure as it is written would legalize the use of marijuana for people 21 years and older and also seal the records of anyone convicted of a marijuana-related crime that would be made legal under the measure.  Currently, medicinal marijuana is legal in North Dakota, passed by the voters in 2016.  If passed, North Dakota would become the 10th state to legalize marijuana, 11th if Washington D.C. is included
