Californians on Tuesday rejected a proposal to make their famously laid-back US state the world's first to legalise all marijuana consumption, cultivation and trade, US television networks forecast.

The proposals in so-called Proposition 19 -- one of a series of referendums held at the same time as crucial mid-term polls -- were rejected by 57% against 43% in favour, said CNN, while Fox News also forecast a No vote.
