Medical Marijuana Doctor Facing Charges
At this time, the doctor’s name has not been made public. But according to Canadian news sources, he used to be a doctor at a medical marijuana clinic in Saskatoon called Natural Health Services.
This week, the doctor came under fire when the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons leveled serious charges against him. In particular, the College claimed that the doctor was improperly making medical marijuana prescriptions during January and February 2017.

Officials at the College allege that the doctor did not conduct adequate or appropriate patient assessments before giving out prescriptions. Similarly, the College claimed that the doctor was billing patients too much for his services.
Beyond these offenses, the College also maintains that the doctor did not follow established protocols for follow up care after
