Election day 2016 in the US provided some surprises, but the country's growing embrace of cannabis was not one of them. Voters in four states - California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada - approved legislation sanctioning the recreational use of marijuana, effectively doubling the number of states that allow the practice. This legislative action suggests that the alcohol beverage industry will likely face increased competition from legalised marijuana somewhat sooner than it had expected.
