ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) -- A medical marijuana user says a collective garden store will open soon in Ellensburg.

Central Washington University student Brian Grimmer, who suffers pain from a broken back, is thanking the Ellensburg City Council for its vote Monday regulating marijuana gardens, under state law.

The Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/q8LWIX ) gardens must be indoors and at least 300 feet from schools and follow other zoning regulations.

Up to 10 medical marijuana patients will be allowed to group together to share grow expenses.
