Deal To Legalize Recreational Marijuana In New Jersey Falls Through

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- A deal to legalize recreational marijuana in New Jersey appears to have suddenly collapsed.

On Friday, several senators pulled their names from a bill that would add penalties for those under 21 caught with marijuana.

Gov. Phil Murphy had approved this version of the bill and was set to sign it after a vote.

That vote was scheduled for Monday, but CBS2 has been told that vote is no longer happening.
