Governor Cuomo says while he still strongly supports the legalization of recreational marijuana, it's unlikely to be instituted in the next state budget.
Cuomo said yesterday that there are many issues that need to be resolved before marijuana becomes legal.
The budget deadline is April 1st.
Cuomo's proposal has been met with opposition by law enforcement and teachers' groups. And some municipalities say they plan to pass their own legislation banning the sale of marijuana in their cities, towns and villages, if it's approved in Albany.
