BOSTON — A top official for a company that won a provisional license to operate two medical marijuana dispensaries in Massachusetts has stepped down after it was reported he erroneously claimed he was a college graduate.

Kevin Fisher said in a letter to the board of directors at New England Treatment Access Inc. that he was resigning as executive director because of the "error I included in my resume." The company said he now has no role in its governance.

The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/1ArogMH ) reported that Fisher said in the application he earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Ohio's Youngstown State University. The school said although he attended the university, it has no record he graduated.

The state is reviewing the company's application to run dispensaries in Brookline and Northampton.
