Three states voted Tuesday to legalize the recreational use of marijuana with a fourth close to doing so.

Voters in California, Massachusetts, and Nevada voted to legalize recreational pot use. A similar measure failed to pass in Arizona while a recreational marijuana proposal in Maine held a narrow “yes” lead with 89 percent of ballots counted.

The California measure would allow adults 21 years and older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow six plants.

Voters in Arkansas, Florida and North Dakota approved proposals allowing the use of medical marijuana. Montana voters approved a measure that would loosen restrictions on an existing medical marijuana law.
