DEA Revoking Certificates of Colorado Marijuana Doctors

DEA Colorado Marijuana Crack Down

According to a report by the Denver Post, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration has pulled the medicine-prescribing certificates of two doctors in Colorado after they allegedly wrote an improper amount of medical marijuana recommendations authorizing high plant counts.

The two doctors–Janet Dean and Gentry Dunlop–were only two of a total of five doctors whose licenses were suspended by the state Medical Board. The DEA published a notice in the Federal Register that Dean’s certificate of registration had been revoke. This was a consequence of the state license suspension and not of new information being found. A similar notice was posted by the DEA about Dunlop in late January 2017.

All of the doctors have been accused of recommending numerous patients be allowed to grow or possess more than the allowed six marijuana plants per patients. The doctors reportedly refuted these claims, calling them arbitrary and that their recommendations conformed to the law and policy.
