The Globe reported Tuesday that the executive director of New England Treatment Access Inc., Kevin Fisher, claimed in the application he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Youngstown State University, but the school said it has no record he received a degree. A screening company hired by the state detected the missing degree in April, but the state let the company go forward with plans to open dispensaries anyway.

Fisher also claimed he previously attended another school, Miami University in Ohio, for two years, when school records show he dropped out after his freshman year.
