Relief from pain may not be around the corner for those seeking pain relief with marijuana. Never mind that nearly three-fourths of Florida’s voters agreed pot should be legal for medical use.

“I don’t understand it,” says Arlene Owens 71, of Boca Raton, of cities’ bans. She said she’d rather try medical marijuana than live with the pain pump that helps relieve her spinal compression and arthritis. “It would be such a blessing for the aging population in our city.”
Boca Raton is considering banning marijuana dispensaries, even though 76 percent of voters in the city agreed last November that medical pot should be legal.
