SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A judge is editing the ballot measure language California voters will receive arguing for and against the legalization of recreational marijuana.

The judge issued amended ballot measure text Friday after each side of Proposition 64 challenged the legality of the other’s campaign arguments in court.

The Sacramento County Superior Court judge allowed proposition opponents to argue that the ballot measure could lead to televised marijuana advertisements that may include marketing of pot-laced candy and pastries aimed at children. But he softened the language, saying such ads are a possibility, not a certainty.

Judge Shelleyanne W.L. Chang also rejected opponents’ attempts to strike language from ballot literature that claims recreational marijuana will be sold only in regulated stores to customers older than 21.

Proposition 64 is on the Nov. 8 ballot.
