On November 8th 2016 California citizens will have the right to vote on whether to legalize Marijuana for recreational purposes. The supporters of this ballot (CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 64) refer to it at the Adult Use of Marijuana Act.
A "yes" vote supports legalizing recreational marijuana and hemp under state law and establishing certain sales and cultivation taxes.
A "no" vote opposes this proposal legalizing recreational marijuana and hemp under state law and establishing certain sales and cultivation taxes.
The current status of marijuana in California remains illegal unless obtained by medical marijuana license under Prop 215. Prop 64 would make recreational marijuana legal in California State law and would allow adults aged 21 years or older. Revenues from the taxes would be spent on drug research, health and safety programs, public youth programs, and other environmental impacts associated with marijuana.
