DENVER (AP) -- Marijuana legalization activists find out Monday whether Colorado will be the second state to have a question on ballots this fall.

A legalization initiative is working on its second try at having the mandatory number of signatures to ask voters whether pot should be legal for adults over 21 even without a doctor's recommendation.

Washington state already has a marijuana legalization measure on ballots this November.

Legalization supports in Colorado were given additional time to collect signatures because too many signatures were deemed invalid. If the second batch does not meet the threshold, marijuana activists will have to start over, though they could sue to challenge some of the rejections.
