I’m sure I wasn’t the only person that he scammed for a heap of cash
After medical marijuana was legalized in this state, I got scammed by a doctor that promised he would get me a medical marijuana card. I had to visit the doctor three times within six months in order to establish myself as a patient. After I was an established patient, the doctor was allowed to write a prescription for medical marijuana. It sounded legitimate, so I paid the first fee for the appointment. The doctor only accepted cash for the medical marijuana appointments. I paid $250 for the first visit. To be honest, the doctor didn’t seem very interested in helping me obtain medical marijuana, but he was recommended by a friend of mine online. The second appointment was an additional $250. At the end of that appointment, I asked the doctor if he was going to be able to prescribe medical marijuana after the third appointment. The doctor acted like he didn’t know what I was talking about. I reminded him that I was there for a medical marijuana recommendation. At that time, the doctor informed me that he was not licensed to prescribe medical marijuana. He refused to refund any of my money and claimed it was a clerical mistake on the website. I think the doctor was a complete and total liar. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person that he scammed for a heap of cash. I learned a valuable and expensive lesson with that doctor. I had to wait nine more months before a real doctor would certify me. I never recovered any of my lost money.
