The Melrose Board of Aldermen approved the final zoning to keep medical marijuana  dispensaries out of the city on a 10 to 0 vote Tuesday, with no discussion.

Melrose became one of the first cities in the state to propose a ban last November, when a public hearing was held.

Many communities have delayed action until the state Department of Public Health develops regulations for the law, approved by Massachusetts voters on a ballot question in the November election.
