If Americans are looking for their spirits to be lifted after Tuesday's election result, new laws passed in three US states may be just the high they're looking for.
It slipped by reasonably unnoticed that on the same night Donald Trump became president, voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada all elected to legalise recreational marijuana.
This makes it the biggest electoral victory for marijuana reform since 2012, when Washington and Colorado first legalised recreational pot use.
Rapper and weed enthusiast Snoop Dogg took to social media to express his feelings on the new laws.
Florida, North Dakota, Arkansas and Montana all passed the legalisation of medical marijuana use on the same night.
Marijuana can now be consumed for both recreational and medical use in seven states; Washington DC, Oregon, Nevada, California, Colorado, Arizona and Massachusetts. Medical marijuana is currently legal in a further 15 states.
The result for legal recreational use in Maine remains pending after a close result, and Arizona voters rejected the legalisation.Another election result which went largely unnoticed was the defeat of a ballot to force porn stars to wear condoms.
