The state told a Westport man today that his medical marijuana growing company will retain its license after it was disclosed that a man it listed as its former chief grower had previously lost a local license to run a marijuana facility in Colorado.
Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein sent a letter to David Lipton, principal in Fairfield-based Advanced Grow Labs LLC, informing him of the state’s decision.
Rubenstein said the company can remain one of the four statewide producers of marijuana for medical purposes because his agency is satisfied that the company’s principals were “equally misled” by John J. Czarkowski.
The commissioner said his office concluded that the company – which is building a production facility in West Haven – had conducted a thorough background check on Czarkowski.
