NY lawmakers failed to legalize marijuana on the last scheduled day of the legislative session.
Many people from different sides of the debate placed the blame on Gov. Cuomo and his inconsistent approach to the process.
The failure left the legislature divided over whether to try to advance a more narrow decriminilization bill.
NY would have been just the 3rd state to legalize through legislation rather than the ballot process and would have created an estimated $3.1 billion + market.
