Calif. voters to decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana

A woman exhales while smoking marijuana during the annual 420 marijuana rally on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada, Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

Legalization supporters consider pot possession either legal or tolerated in Argentina, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, India, Jamaica, Jordan, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay, Germany and the Netherlands.

FILE - In this June 15, 2014 file photograph, flowers top the memorial marker for Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman, civil rights workers who were killed in the "Mississippi Burning" case of 1964, outside the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, Miss., following a commemorative service in their honor. With additional criminal charges ruled out in the 1964 killings of the three civil rights workers, the community and state are left with harder ways to pursue justice in the case. Relatives of Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner said their deaths should prompt reflection about racism across Mississippi and the United States. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
