The sale and recreational use of marijuana is now legal in California.

At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day, California became the sixth of the 50 U.S. states, along with the national capital of Washington, D.C., to sanction pot use, even though the federal government still classifies its sale and possession as a criminal offense. Colorado, Washington, Oregon,  Alaska and Nevada are the other U.S. states with regulated recreational marijuana sales.

With marijuana legalization in California, home to 39 million people, more than one in five Americans now live in states where the drug is sold for general use and not just for medicinal purposes.

In California, adults 21 and older can grow up to six plants and legally possess an ounce of the drug, similar to laws in the other five states that have legalized it.

But initial sales of marijuana in California could be somewhat limited compared to what might evolve in the coming months. Only about 90 businesses secured the necessary licenses to operate marijuana retail outlets from the outset of the new year, none of them in the state’s biggest city, Los Angeles, or in the third biggest, San Francisco.

The California marijuana law was one of dozens of new statutes to take effect in the U.S. as the calendar turned from 2017 to 2018.

Also in California, employers can no longer ask job applicants about their prior salary history, while Vermont companies are now prohibited from inquiring about employees’ social media use. New York workers can now take up to eight weeks of paid family leave to care for a newborn, adopted or foster child or an ill family member.

In Illinois, pets will now be treated more like children in property splits during contentious divorce cases, with spouses given partial or joint custody.
