HARTFORD — CBS Connecticut – A medical marijuana dispensary says it is hiring a former state Public Safety Commissioner to run security at its planned East Hartford location.

In a document filed as part of its application to the town (Constitution Care Marijuana Dispensary), Constitution Care says former Commissioner Bernard Sullivan will lead its security efforts.  Sullivan also is a former Hartford Police Chief.

The business says its product will be protected by retired cops recruited through the Fraternal Order of Police.

The town’s planning and zoning commission has approved the dispensary.

The dispensary says it plans to sell marijuana flowers, extracts, cookies, brownies, popcorn and olive oil on Pitkin Street.

The East Hartford location has yet to go before state regulators for final approval.

Branford approved a similar facility in November.
