A North Dakota-based private clinic that provided evaluations for medical marijuana has been forced to close and repay $21,800 to patients who ultimately did not receive their medical marijuana cards.
Green Health Docs was found to have not established a “bonafide provider-patient relationship” with consumers, which is a requirement of North Dakota’s medical marijuana law.
A provider-patient relationship cannot be “for the sole purpose of providing written certification for the medical use of marijuana,” the newspaper reported, citing the law.
It was not immediately clear if the action affects Green Health Docs’ clinics in other states.
