California voters approve marijuana legalization

Voters in California have approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in the state.

The measure would allow adults 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants.

It also would allow adult-use retailers to sell up to a quarter ounce of pot to adults.

The measure also includes an adult-serving ban on public displays of marijuana.

California currently has a long-standing marijuana prohibition that’s been on the books since 1937, when the state’s then-governor Nelson Rockefeller declared the drug a “dangerous and unusual” substance.

Since then, California has been in the midst of a marijuana legalization push.

The legislature approved an amendment to the state constitution that made it legal to possess marijuana in 2016, but opponents have vowed to overturn the measure.

The latest effort in the effort was backed by President Donald Trump, who announced in February that he supported the ballot initiative, although the president has not yet made a decision.
