CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. -- Citrus Heights has joined a growing number of cities to allow medical marijuana shops.

The Citrus Heights Planning Commission met Wednesday night to discuss a request to open such a shop, and approved the request after making a few zoning changes.

Supporters said that, despite the controversy, they are glad that seriously ill patients will be getting help.

'This is about a medical facility ... nobody wants to see some bad establishment come in to the community ... we're looking at a medical facility to help patients,' supporter Nathaniel Sands said.

The cities of Roseville and Elk Grove have also approved medical marijuana shops.

California voters approved a ballot measure in 1996 that legalized the use and sale of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
