TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin says a voting session for Monday in New Jersey’s Assembly that was to include a measure setting up the new recreational marijuana market has been canceled. Coughlin, a Democrat, said it was clear the legislation wouldn’t get final approval because of differences between his house’s bill and one in the Democrat-led Senate. The Senate had also planned a Monday session but it was canceled late on Thursday, with lawmakers citing the Thanksgiving holiday coming up. Lawmakers had aimed to fast-track the legislation after voters overwhelmingly approved legalizing recreational marijuana. But a deal on legislation has eluded legislative leaders and Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy.
