"Today marks a fresh start for California, as we prepare to replace the costly, harmful and ineffective system of prohibition with a safe, legal and responsible adult-use marijuana system that gets it right and completely pays for itself," said Jason Kinney, spokesperson for the so-called Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

As of Tuesday, enough signatures had been gathered in support of the initiative to legalize marijuana and hemp under state law which means Californians will soon get to decide if recreational marijuana use should be legalized.

The Secretary of State's office said Tuesday, that "The initiative needed at least 402,468 projected valid signatures to qualify by random sampling, and it exceeded that threshold today.", which means that the Secretary of State, Alex Padilla will certify in two days' time, that the initiative has qualified for the November ballot.
