Can't Do Pot And The Budget At The Same Time

State House Speaker Robert DeLeo is  suspending negotiations on changes to the marijuana legalization law.   

DeLeo says the pot talks will have to wait until after a state budget  compromise is reached.  

Senate President Stanley Rosenberg disagrees  with the approach, saying the negotiations on the budget and legal  marijuana could happen at the same time.  

A temporary budget passed last  month has allowed state government to function since the new fiscal  year began July 1st.
