WHDH Takes an Undercover Look at Medical Marijuana Certifications

An undercover WHDH producer was certified to grow and posses medical marijuana at two Massachusetts clinics after showing doctors the x-rays of a dog (video above).

Massachusetts law permits doctors to give a marijuana certification to possess and grow a 60 day supply “after a full assessment” of the “patients medical history” they think the “benefits would outweigh the health risks,” according to WHDH. The producer went to three clinics with just the x-rays — which were of a yellow Labrador’s elbow — and no detailed medical records. She was able to obtain a certification at two of the three health clinics.

“He asked me a couple of questions, but he didn’t do even a basic exam. No heart rate, no blood pressure, he didn’t examine my elbow. The whole thing took seven minutes,” the producer said of one clinic.
