US state of Virginia legalises recreational cannabis

Virginia has become the 16th US state to pass a law decriminalising cannabis possession. Under the new law, adults over the age of 21 will be permitted to possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis for personal use. The legislation was originally due to be introduced in January 2024 but was bought forward and will now be implemented in July 2021.
