Outdoor cannabis grows drew a negative response from the Vacaville City Council Tuesday, while a permit program for people who want to grow up to six plants indoors will be explored further.
Both issues will return to the Vacaville City Council for a vote.
Mayor Len Augustine said the only option he could agree with was no outdoor grows, because if they do nothing, then they have to allow that under state law.
He reiterated several times that federal law still prohibits marijuana.
Other members of the council agreed with banning outdoor grows, but some also spoke about establishing a permit or registry system for indoor grows.
