Opinion: Medical Marijuana Fee Increase Will Kill the Program

This past decade, I have been in solo practice as a medical marijuana doctor helping people get their medical marijuana license. Prior to becoming a medical marijuana doctor, I worked as an emergency medicine doctor at Denver Health. The medical field is a complicated universe. As a younger doctor, a mentor of mine gave some advice regarding how to navigate through this complicated universe. He explained to me that whatever you do as a doctor, if you do it for the patient’s well-being, you will be doing it for the right reasons. Nearly 25 years later, it is the best advice I ever got from someone regarding how to always be the best doctor I can be. “Do it for the patient” and you will never be misguided.
