File - In this Dec. 15, 2011 file photo, medical marijuana patient Kevin Brown smells marijuana available at The Apothecarium Medical Cannabis Dispensary in San Francisco. California cities and counties can ban  medical marijuana dispensaries, the state's highest court ruled Monday in a unanimous opinion likely to further diminish California's once-robust medical marijuana industry. The California Supreme Court said neither the state's voter-approved law legalizing medical marijuana nor a companion measure adopted by the Legislature prevent local governments from using their land use and zoning powers to prohibit storefront dispensaries.
