California has become the latest state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Consumers older than 21 may buy pot without a medical card thanks to Proposition 64, which voters approved in 2016. The law became officially enacted today, Jan. 1, 2018.

Marijuana may not be available right on Jan. 1 as businesses have to apply for a state license to begin selling recreational marijuana.
