Those cities are being sued by the ACLU on behalf of a medical marijuana patient with multiple sclerosis.</p><p>Attorney and medical marijuana patient John Ter Beek lives in Wyoming. He is also considering legal action if city council adopts the rules. He has been in talks with the ACLU about taking up his case. Officials with the ACLU confirm that but say it&rsquo;s too soon to say if they will.</p><p>Wyoming&rsquo;s City Council unanimously favored an early version of the ban last month. They have safety concerns when it comes to distributing medical marijuana. Under the new rules, the city would follow federal law over state laws about marijuana. Mayor Jack Poll says he expects final approval despite pending court cases.
