The Portland city council voted Monday to hold off on its decision of legalizing pot in the city.

A group of residents collected more than twice as many signatures needed to send a proposal of legalizing pot to voters. The group only needed 1,500 signatures but collected 3,200, the city clerks office verified 2,508.

The council can do one of three options after a public hearing. They can adopt the ordinance proposal, send it to voters or offer an alternative version of the ordinance.

If the proposal is sent to voters the vote must happen within 90 days.

The proposal would allow folks 21 years and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of recreational pot within city limits. It still would ban use in public areas and landlords can refuse to allow marijuana on their property.
