4 Colorado Doctors Suspended for Prescribing Too Many Medical Marijuana Plants to Patients

4 Colorado Doctors Suspended for Prescribing Too Many Medical Marijuana Plants to Patients

The Colorado Medical Board took the largest disciplinary action against medical marijuana doctors in state history Tuesday when, in one fell swoop, it suspended the medical licenses of four doctors for allegedly allowing more than 1,500 patients to grow an excessive amount of personal cannabis plants.

Dr. Gentry Dunlop of Aurora, Dr. Robert Maiocco of Denver, Dr. Deborah Parr of Durango, and Dr. William Stone of Colorado Springs were collectively suspended from practicing medicine. The suspensions were handed down Tuesday at the same time the doctors first learned they were even under investigation.
