ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An attorney for an Albuquerque physician who screens and certifies patients to use medical marijuana says his client will appeal a state board's decision to suspend the doctor's license to practice medicine.
The Medical Board had previously told Dr. Nicholas Nardacci that it had enough evidence to warrant suspending his license for violations that included improper certifications for medical marijuana use.
Nardacci has denied wrongdoing, and attorney Paul Livingston says his client will appeal the board's ruling Thursday in a venue yet to be determined.
According to the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/1cRzNM2), the Medical Board ordered Nardacci to undergo a professional evaluation.
He also must submit a plan for practicing in the future that includes supervision by another physician.
