Cincinnati City Council is set to approve a measure Wednesday that would allow medical marijuana to be grown in certain parts of the city.

Council's Law & Public Safety Committee passed a plan that would permit it in a variety of areas including ones primarily along the Mill Creek corridor and the Ohio River on the city's West Side.

"This is the first step to opening the door to cultivating marijuana," said Councilman Christopher Smitherman, committee chairman.

The state will have the final say on where the "grow" sites are.
