West Palm gives final OK to medical marijuana shops

The city commission gave its final approval Monday to medical marijuana dispensaries in nonresidential areas of West Palm Beach.

The unanimous vote came without discussion, having received initial approval earlier this month.

West Palm joins Lake Worth, Wellington, Boynton Beach and Deerfield Beach in allowing the dispensaries, which sell pot for prescription use. Although still illegal under federal law, 29 states permit medical marijuana, and nine states, in the West and New England, allow marijuana for recreational use.
