Medical marijuana supporters are planning to be out in force this weekend.

Those pushing to place a constitutional amendment on the 2014 ballot have planned their second "Day of Action" on Saturday. It's part of an ongoing effort to gather the nearly 700,000 signatures needed to put the amendment before voters.

United for Care plans to set up locations in 14 different cities where volunteers can pick up and drop off petition forms.

Last week, organizers said they gathered close to 100,000 petitions. But supporters want to get additional signatures since it's likely some of the petitions will be invalid. Petitions must be signed by registered voters.

In order to make the ballot the state Supreme Court must also approve the language that will go on the ballot.
