HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s consumer protection commissioner says he remains confident in how his agency has vetted the state’s new medical marijuana producers, despite recently learning an employee at one firm selected for an operating license had had lost his local license in 2012 to run a Colorado marijuana facility.

William Rubenstein (ROO’-bin-shtyn) told The Associated Press on Thursday that his agency will decide in days what action, if any, it will take regarding Advanced Grow Labs LLC.

The Boston Globe first reported that John J. Czarkowski, director of production for Advanced Grow Labs LLC., and his wife Diane, were forced to shut down their Colorado medical marijuana facility because of numerous violations.

Rubenstein said information about Czarkowski’s municipal licenses was not disclosed to his office, calling it a “serious issue.”
