A pro-marijuana legalization group is pushing to legalize recreational marijuana in the state, and some Floridians might wake up to find information about it in their mailbox.

The group “Make It Legal Florida” is running a petition drive to try to get enough signatures to add an amendment on the 2020 ballot.

The group needs 775,000 signatures by February to make it happen.

According to the amendment language, adults 21 and older would legally be allowed to possess, display, purchase, or transport 2.5 ounces of marijuana for personal use.

Medical marijuana dispensaries would be allowed to sell it to the public.
