A bill that would have legalized marijuana in New Jersey did not advance on Monday, the same week as state lawmakers in New York are considering whether a similar provision would be included in the state budget.

The developments in New Jersey buoyed opponents of commercialized marijuana legalization.

“The pot industry told everyone legalization was inevitable in deep-blue New Jersey and today’s rejection proves them wrong again,” said Smart Approaches to Marijuana’s Kevin Sabet. “Lawmakers in New Jersey heard the pleas of parents, health professionals, law enforcement and others and blocked this bill.”

At the moment, it appears unlikely a marijuana legalization framework will be in a finalized budget deal due on Sunday.

Cuomo in an interview on WAMC on Monday morning suggested he was still trying to make a final deal work by the end of the week.

“We are working to try to get marijuana done,” he said. “It is complex and it’s, the devil is in the details. And I don’t know that it is done for the budget, but if it’s not done after the budget, I believe we get it done after the budget. But if we can get it done in the budget and use the budget as an accelerant for compromise and decision making, even better.”
