California to decide on cannabis

Those backing legalised marijuana sale enjoy narrow lead ahead of November vote.

    This November, California voters will decide whether they would legalise the sale of marijuana.

    A measure on the statewide ballot called Proposition 19 would fully legalise, regulate and tax marijuana sales, which would be restricted to adults over age 21.

    Most of California's elected officials and candidates for governor oppose legalisation, but the latest polls show voters who are in favour of Proposition 19 have a narrow lead.
