TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Medical marijuana supporters say they have collected enough signatures to make the 2014 ballot.

The group pushing the constitutional amendment announced Wednesday it has collected more than 1.1 million signatures.

It takes nearly 700,000 signatures from registered voters in order to qualify for the ballot. So far election supervisors have certified nearly 458,000 signatures.

Groups pushing a constitutional amendment typically gather more signatures than needed in case some are rejected. In order the make this year's ballot, the state Supreme Court must also approve the language that will go on the ballot.

Attorney General Pam Bondi has called the amendment misleading and wants the court to reject it. If the court approves the wording, the amendment needs a yes vote from 60 percent of the voters in order to pass.
