Doctor Accused Of Medical Marijuana Fraud 5-25-2011

State officials have suspended the license of a Macomb County doctor they say conspired to sell medical marijuana certificates from a clinic in the back of an appliance store.
The Detroit Free Press reports Lois Butler-Jackson is the first physician to have a medical license suspended in connection with the law.
Attorney General Bill Schuette and state Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director Steven Hilfinger announced the 50-year-old Detroit woman's suspension on Tuesday.
Schuette and Hilfinger say Butler-Jackson teamed with a man who operated a clinic out of his Warren store. They say Butler-Jackson sold signed medical marijuana certificates for patients who had not been seen by the doctor.
A message was left Wednesday by The Associated Press for Butler-Jackson, who worked as a home care physician in Clinton Township.
