    Residents of the US state of California approved Proposition 64, making the recreational use of marijuana legal in the state, local media reported Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The proposition allows state residents over 21 years of age to buy, carry and use up to an ounce (28.5 grams) of marijuana for recreational purposes, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    Californians voted in favor of the law six years after narrowly rejecting it.

    The medical use of cannabis became legal in the state 20 years ago.
