WA: State Investigates Medical Marijuana Authorizations At Hempfest
TokeoftheTown / Steve Elliott / 09,02,2011

​Washington state healthcare regulators have opened an investigation into two medical professionals who were issuing medical marijuana authorizations at Seattle Hempfest in August.

The preliminary investigation was started by the Department of Health (DOH) on Thursday, based on an August 21 story in The Seattle Times which described a reporter’s ability to get a medical marijuana authorization based on complaints of back pain, reports Jonathan Martin at The Seattle Times.

"It was opened as a result of media reports," said DOH spokesman Tim Church, who declined to name the two healthcare professionals.

As long as we are living under a grey cloud of semi-legalization,,a little discretion goes a long ways!
