Mass Patients & Vets oppose budget amendment that would enshrine DPH regs.

The Young Jurks, Saturdays, 6pm ET live on www.wemfradio.com/live with Hosts, Mike Crawford  & Lauren Pespisa with in-studio guests, Nichole Snow & Michael Latullipe of Mass Patient Advocacy Alliance and Veteran, Stephen Mandile explain why they now oppose State Senator Jason Lewis' budget amendment that would waive the $50 annual medical marijuana DPH fee for Veterans. 

Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance and Veterans Alternative Healing believe that the Department of Public Health "lacks statutory authority" to charge medical marijuana patients for cards. The budget amendment could "enshrine such fees into law" and may cause "irreparable harm" to the Initiative law approved by Massachusetts voters in 2012.

Other topics of discussion, State Senator- Anne Gobi throwing medical marijuana patients under the bus, "gummy bears", State Senator- Pat Jehlen, Cambridge City Councilor- Leland Cheung, and the lame Boston media coverage, Governor Charlie Baker, and Boston's continuing shakedown of the Boston Freedom Rally.

Saturdays, 6pm ET The Young Jurks live on WEMF Radio.

6/11/2016 The Young Jurks episode with a phone call from documentary producer, Greg Horvath Producer of "The Business of Recovery" doc.

With Stephen Mandile of Veterans Alternative Healing, Inc. live in-studio discussing his meeting that never happened with Governor Charlie Baker.

The Young Jurks also read a statement from Attorney Michael Cutler related to the use of Certified Nurse Practitioners to recommend medical marijuana by Canna Care Docs. 

G.L. c. 112, sec. 80I [https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXVI/Chapter112/Section80I] enables NPs to perform tasks under a doctor’s supervision generally, which would appear to include certifying patients under the MMJ statute (St. 2012, c. 369). BRN — the nurses' licensing agency, the Board of Registration in Nursing — enacted regulation 244 CMR sec. 4.06(3)(d), which does so explicitly.

http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf 
 
Still, the MMJ statute (at sec. 12&13) delegates only to DPH, the authority to issue regulations to implement the state MMJ law; DPH’s failure to adopt the BRN regulation (thus limiting MMJ certs to doctors, excluding NPs) appears to be the basis for BRM’s — the doctors’ licensing agency, the Board of Regulation in Medicine — persecution of at least one Canna Care Docs (CCD)-doctor. CCD’s doctor may have a defense based on sec. 80I, but BRM may persist in its jihad against MMJ doctors until both trial and appellate judges tell the BRM it is wrong (if the judges rule that sec. 80I and the BRN regulation trumps the failure of DPH to adopt a corresponding regulation allowing NPs to certify MMJ patients). 
 
Note, I do not represent CCD, nor its doctor(s)."

Quoting from Pursuant to Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012 and M.G.L.c.112 ꬸ 801, CNP’s are authorized to issue written certifications of marijuana for medical use as provided pursuant to the mutually agreed upon guidelines between the CNP and the physician supervising the CNP’s prescriptive practice. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf

According to the board’s order in Nadolny’s case, he is currently the medical director of Canna Care Docs, a medical marijuana dispensary company with several locations.

As of May 20, Nadolny, who also has privileges at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital, had issued 5,792 medical marijuana certificates and violated protocols on “multiple occasions,” the order said.

Among the violations were failing to diagnose patients with a debilitating medical condition as required by law and delegating to nurse practitioners the authority to make such diagnoses.
