The Legislature’s marijuana legalization efforts have been reduced to ashes amid the political battle over tax breaks

Efforts to pass cannabis legislation stalled in March after the state Senate was unable to muster the necessary votes, paving the way for a last-chance May attempt on the package before the onset of budget talks.
