PHOENIX - Arizona legislators have approved a bill to prohibit use or possession of medical marijuana at public universities, community colleges or child-care facilities.

A Senate vote of 28-2 on Wednesday completes legislative action on the bill. It goes next to Gov. Jan Brewer.

Supporters included university officials and prosecutors, while the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona opposed the bill's prohibition for higher education institutions.

The House and Senate both approved the bill by the three-quarters votes needed because the legislation relates to a voter-approved law.

Arizona voters approved a 2010 initiative measure that legalized medical marijuana.
