Los Angeles:

 

Voters in California on Tuesday approved the recreational use of marijuana in the nation’s most populous state, officials said.

Citing partial results, the secretary of state’s office said the measure had been approved by more than 55% of voters -- a major victory for the legalisation movement.

That means California joins Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington state and Washington, DC in allowing the use of recreational cannabis for adults.
