Oregon voters now have a chance to make marijuana legal to anyone over the age of 21.

Late Friday, the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act got enough signatures to make the November ballot.

Supporters say the state's struggling general fund would get more than $140 million a year in tax revenue from selling marijuana in state-licensed stores.

Oregon now joins Washington and Colorado in this vote.
All three states will be voting in November on initiatives to legalize and tax marijuana.
