Fake Doctor Signed 600 Patients' Medical Pot Paperwork

Jun 22, 2020

Officials say about 600 patients seeking authorization to purchase medical marijuana in Missouri had their paperwork signed by a fake doctor.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services said in a news release that there is no evidence to indicate the affected patients were aware the physician listed was not the physician who met with them. The affected patients will be notified and given 30 days to submit a valid certificate before their license is revoked.

The agency also said it has referred the case to the Attorney General’s Office and to the Missouri Board of Healing Arts for further action.
