Advocates of legal marijuana want it included in budget

Supporters of legalizing recreational marijuana plan to hold rallies each day at the State Capitol this week, urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers to add the measure in the state budget.According to
WRVO Public Media,Kassandra Frederique with the Drug Policy Alliance said supporters worry that if the issue lingers until later in the session, its chances of passing will diminish."Kicking the can down the road more is not a good sign for us as community members," Frederique said. "The urgency about what legalization can do to help our communities is critical."Legislative leaders have said they'd like to tackle the problem after the budget. However Cuomo, speaking on WNYC's"The Brian Lehrer Show," stated the measure remains"on the desk," though he is not counting on revenue from any taxes on legal cannabis from the new state spending plan.A vote to legalize marijuana in the New Jersey Legislature was canceled earlier this week when supporters couldn't muster sufficient support.
