This is evil!! The so called 'doctors' who made this decision should lost their licenses and if the man dies they should be charged with premeditated murder! If the man was using a harmful addicting substance like alcohol there would probably be no problem.

“Good luck with that !!!!”

I'd be willing to bet that it is not the doctor, but rather an administrator who knows little about cannabis and has no ability to think.
