Petitioners gathered enough signatures to put the question of whether to allow marijuana businesses before voters on the May ballot.

Chief petitioner David Kilpatrick, Canyon City, gathered 198 signatures by the deadline, two more than required, according to County Clerk Brenda Percy.

If approved by a majority of voters on the May ballot, the initiative would overturn the county ban and allow the production, cultivation, processing, wholesaling, retailing and testing of marijuana as permitted by the state in areas outside of city limits within the county.
