California Voters Legalize Recreational Marijuana

California Voters Legalize Recreational Marijuana

But a recount can be requested with no financial cost for race results within 1.5 percentage points. The referendum tabulated the final results and the count took nearly two days because of the race was close within a percentage point. Once recreational dispensaries receive their licenses, it will be illegal to cultivate marijuana in a residence within 25 miles of a recreational dispensary.

We have a lot of work to do.

There are many divisive and decisive issues on this year's ballot.

We have seen a very slight softening on the attitudes of legislators here in Texas when it comes to marijuana legislation, but there is still a long way to go before there's any sort of wide-scale legalization.

Before Election Day, it was only legal to use recreational marijuana in four states and in the District of Columbia, with Colorado and Washington state approving the drug in 2012, and Alaska and OR approving it in 2014. Some municipalities have balked at allowing such businesses to open in their communities.

President Barack Obama said that with marijuana legal in some form in more than half of the country, maintaining the federal prohibition of cannabis might be "untenable".

"Even if we didn't have signals from Donald Trump, the fact is that this is where the public has moved", said Blumenauer, who first promoted legalization as a member of the Oregon Legislature in 1973.

The campaign pushes legalization immediately turned towards implementation process.

Massachusetts: Adults will be able to use and possess marijuana starting December 15, but the first recreational dispensary won't open until at least January 1, 2018.

Judson Stannard who lives in Enfield, Connecticut, thinks some people will cross the border to get marijuana.

All of the marijuana sold in ME will also be grown in ME, he said. It must be out of sight and there may not be more than twelve plants per residence. Representatives from California's and Massachusetts' state tourism bureaus did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.

California, Massachusetts and Nevada - in addition to ME - approved recreational pot on Tuesday. The business regulatory framework will be created by the same state agencies tasked by the legislature previous year to license and oversee the medical cannabis industry.

As marijuana legalization becomes more widespread, recreational markets could prove more profitable than Pennsylvania's medical marijuana program.

Last May, the Congress submitted a marijuana measure to allow the Department of Veterans Affairs to recommend medical marijuana to veterans in the states where marijuana is legal.

Parents' groups and some law enforcement organizations opposed the proposal. This includes preliminary results from interviews conducted as voters left a random sample of 30 precincts statewide Tuesday, as well as 744 who voted early or absentee and were interviewed by landline or cellular telephone from October 29 through November 4.
