Quoting from Pursuant to Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012 and M.G.L.c.112 ê¬¸ 801, CNPâ€™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 CNPâ€™s prescriptive practice. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf
According to the boardâ€™s order in Nadolnyâ€™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 â€œmultiple occasions,â€� 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.
