California Voters Approve Marijuana

Cannabis, already legal for medical use in California, is now cleared for recreation
Voters in California, Nevada and Massachusetts have endorsed the recreational use of marijuana in state-wide polls.
The votes, which took place alongside the presidential election, legalise the growth and consumption of cannabis for those over 21 years old.

Results in Maine are not yet know, while Arizona rejected legalising recreational use.
People in Florida and North Dakota, meanwhile, legalised medicinal use.
The drug will be an option in the management of conditions including cancer, Aids and hepatitis C.
California said the taxes on the sale and farming of cannabis would support youth programmes, environmental protection and law enforcement.

Legal marijuana is among the fastest growing industries in America, with some analysts suggesting sales could reach $22bn (£17.6bn) by 2020.
Opponents, however, had said the proposition opened the way for promotion of the drug on shows watched by young people, exhibiting "reckless disregard for child health and safety".
In Massachusetts, the legislation is set to take effect in December, with similar taxation measures to those in California.
