Quoting from Pursuant to Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012 and M.G.L.c.112 ꬸ 801, CNP’s are authorized to issue written certifications of marijuana for medical use as provided pursuant to the mutually agreed upon guidelines between the CNP and the physician supervising the CNP’s prescriptive practice. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf
According to the board’s order in Nadolny’s case, he is currently the medical director of Canna Care Docs, a medical marijuana dispensary company with several locations.
As of May 20, Nadolny, who also has privileges at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital, had issued 5,792 medical marijuana certificates and violated protocols on “multiple occasions,” the order said.
Among the violations were failing to diagnose patients with a debilitating medical condition as required by law and delegating to nurse practitioners the authority to make such diagnoses.
