Ahead of a vote on a statewide amendment that would legalize medical marijuana, Boca Raton is poised to approve a city law that would ban the sale or cultivation of marijuana, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Other municipalities, including  Boynton Beach, North Palm Beach, Lake Clarke Shores and the village of Golf, also are working on year-long bans on marijuana treatment centers. 

Meanwhile, the cities of Titusville and Coconut Creek each have approved a six-month moratorium, and the Central Florida city of Eustis is also pushing for at least a temporary ban to keep medical marijuana out, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
