The state’s Democratic governor campaigned heavily on this issue, the public was also on board as shown by the polling figures, and measures were channeling through the chain of the Democratic lead state legislature, pushed by the lawmakers who were in favor of the effort.

However, in March, just hours prior to a scheduled vote on the same legalization bill, the measure was completely yanked from the agenda for an apparent lack of support in the Senate. Despite lukewarm promises from the top state lawmakers that they would continue to push for the bill to be passed, the state’s Democratic Senate president publicly declared that the legislation found its death last week.
