SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Medical marijuana advocates in San Jose have failed in its petition drive to let voters decide whether to overturn the city's tough restrictions on pot clubs.

The City Clerk's office on Monday says supporters came up more than 10,000 signatures short of the 33,262 registered voters needed to put their measure seeking more loose regulations on the ballot in November, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Last month, San Jose's City Council approved new rules that limit pot clubs to less than one percent of the city's parcels. Those new rules may likely force a majority of the 80 dispensaries in the city to shutter by July 2015 even though those businesses have a year to find a new location.

Many dispensaries near homes have already shut down.
