This is ridiculous. Who did he hurt? I would rather have this doctor than one that drinks alcohol. Ruining this person's life over a harmless plant is ridiculous. There are millions of people who use cannabis responsibly and this doctor sounds like one of them. Hopefully the medical board will do the right thing and allow this doctor to continue to practice.

Agree completely! However, he should not have been driving.
