Probe into pot company's actions urged

Letter asks state to investigate medical marijuana proposal


After the meeting, Jajuga told a reporter that the letter he brought to Fiorentini’s office was written by Healthy Pharms’ attorney, but that the mayor re-wrote it and then had Scatamacchia sign it.

Council President John Michitson said an official at the state Public Health Department told him that, at the council’s request, the department would investigate allegations of misrepresentations by Healthy Pharms in its application. The council did not pursue that option last week, but Councilor William Macek said it may at a future meeting.

Councilors also did not pursue an invitation from Michitson to consider contacting the Attorney General’s Office about the company’s alleged misrepresentations and Jajuga’s actions on behalf of the company. Scatamacchia previously called for an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office.
