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.
