A court says two Southern California cities aren't discriminating against the disabled by banning medical marijuana dispensaries.

The San Francisco Chronicle says bans by the cities of Irvine and Lake Forest were upheld Monday by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The bans were challenged by disabled residents who had doctors' recommendations for pot to ease severe pain.

In a 2-1 ruling, the appellate panel said it sympathized with those users but federal law banning marijuana use doesn't exempt the disabled.
