Meet a Medical Marijuana Doctor

Meet the Oregon doctor who prescribes medical marijuana to almost 4,200 "patients."

He's an 80-year-old retired heart surgeon.

And he is not alone. The health authority says 37 doctors have exceeded the 450-patient threshold since 2005. These doctors signed statements asserting “primary responsibility for the care and treatment” of as many as 5,400 medical marijuana patients each.

Whatever you call this, it doesn't look like medicine.
