Forging physician signatures can get someone booted from the marijuana industry and could lead to jail time.

That’s the hard lesson Carolan Krajewski, owner of Delaware Holistic Medicine, is learning after pleading guilty to tampering with public documents. The business, which previously was known as Disjointed, provided health records to help patients get medical marijuana cards.

Citing court records, The News Journal reported that the 37-year-old clinic owner acknowledged forging the signature of a doctor who no longer worked for her clinic on three medical marijuana applications.

Court documents show she pleaded guilty to first- and second-degree charges of tampering with a public record. Her sentence of two years in jail was suspended for probation, according to the court order.

Krajewski is not allowed to have contact with her former clients or participate in any future medical marijuana business. She was arrested for falsifying client paperwork in June.

The report didn’t include comment from Krajewski, a lawyer or her clinic.
