With the legalization of medical marijuana, I could not help but think, could a medical marijuana practice be the next "pill mill" and how could that be possible with the strict requirements set forth in Section 381.986, Florida Statutes? Turns out, only a handful of physicians are prescribing the majority of medical marijuana. While this may at first blush indicate a problem, keep in mind that marijuana, even medical marijuana is still outlawed under federal law and many physicians are not willing to risk a DEA license or possibly a state license to become a physician that certifies a patient for using medical marijuana. If a physician does become a qualified physician and issues medical marijuana certifications, certain practices and behaviors should be avoided.
