Headed to Boston, marijuana firm admits to errors

False data in bid for permit

A medical marijuana business planning to open in Boston’s Back Bay provided false information to state regulators in its license application, erroneously claiming to have support from state legislators and the district’s city councilor.

In addition, Boston City Councilor Stephen J. Murphy told the Globe Tuesday that he felt he was manipulated into writing a letter on behalf of Good Chemistry of Massachusetts’ application by the company’s consultant, who he said didn’t disclose to Murphy the planned location of the dispensary on Boylston Street. Murphy, who was council president until the start of this year, said he opposes locating a marijuana business at the site between Arlington and Berkeley streets.
