There have been celebrations and commiserations today - with the initial results of the two referendums released. 

Preliminary results of the referendum on the End of Life Choice Act show 65-point-1-percent of voters in favour of the legislation and 33-point-8-percent opposed.

However, the Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill is unlikely to become law: the vote in that referendum is 46-point-1-percent in favour and 53-point-1 opposed.
