An agreement to legalize marijuana in New York is unlikely to be accomplished this month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Monday, pointing to a “wide divide” over the details in the Legislature.

“I am no longer confident marijuana will be done by the budget,” Cuomo said. I believe it is essential to get done by the budget.”

The legalization of marijuana has raised concerns from some lawmakers over safety impacts, while others want to see criminal justice law changes, such as the expunging of records for those convicted of low-level offenses.

“There is a wide divide on marijuana,” he said at a press conference at the Capitol. “I believe ultimately we can get there. I believe we must get there. I don’t believe we get there in two weeks.”

The process is moving too slow for an agreement to be reached, Cuomo said.

“The rate of progress does not suggest it’s going to happen,” Cuomo said.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has said he is open to either the program being approved in the budget or taken up in the post-budget portion of the session, which runs through June.

Cuomo had called previously to use some of the sales tax revenue to raise funds for the battered mass transit system in New York City. Cuomo in recent days has signaled he would be open to tax on second homes worth more than $5 million, known as a pied-a-terre tax

“You can’t do a budget without a funding stream for the MTA,” Cuomo said. “So, if you don’t have marijuana, you need something else. What else can you do besides marijuana? Pied-a-terre tax.”

But that is only estimated to raise $29 billion in revenue, short of the $40 billion the MTA has called for in its capital plan. Cuomo said that shortfall would have to be made up with efficiencies in the MTA’s budget or another funding source.
