BOSTON (AP) — House and Senate negotiators on Beacon hill are planning to resume talks they hope will lead to a compromise on a marijuana bill.
The six-member conference committee missed last Friday’s self-imposed deadline, but was scheduled to resume talks at the Statehouse on Wednesday.
The negotiations are taking place behind closed doors and there has been no official word on what might be standing in the way of an agreement.

The Senate passed a bill that keeps the current law with a number of proposed changes.
