East Valley Tribune: “Doctors who recommend marijuana to patients can’t be charged with crimes even if they did not follow the procedures required by law, the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.  The judges acknowledged that Robert Gear, a Phoenix naturopath with offices in several communities, had been charged with recommending the drug to a patient without having access to 12 months of her medical records. That is a requirement under the law.  Gear was indicted on charges of forgery and fraudulent schemes after saying on a form required by the Department of Health Services that he had, in fact, seen those records.”
