    New Jersey voters overwhelmingly turned out in support of legalised recreational cannabis, according to AP results.

    The measure means the state is to become the 12th with legal weed. It passed with about 67% of the vote and with the support of all 21 counties in the state.

    Minutes after New Jersey was called, Arizona was also projected to pass a measure legalising cannabis for adult use.

    Voters in two other states will be deciding whether or not to legalise cannabis tonight. Montana and South Dakota still have to report their results.
