Despite approval from the planning commission in September, council members have unanimously voted against the opening of a hydroponics and indoor gardening store in Old Town Tustin, according to the OC Register.

While proponents view the hydroponics store as a good use of small space that would be difficult to lease to other tenants, councilman John Nielsen says selling hydroponics is "not compatible with Old Town Tustin businesses and homes" and suggests the store take its business to "an industrial area in the city instead."

Reports studied by the council state an increase in potential marijuana smoking and "one person being stabbed" near a Fountain Valley shop as reason enough to to vote no.
