What Can Cause Me To Lose My Medical Cannabis Recommendation?
While the doctor may – at any point – revoke a patient’s certification for cannabis, the Department of Health may suspend or revoke the registration of a qualified patient or caregiver if the qualified patient or caregiver:
- Provides misleading, incorrect, false, or fraudulent information to the department;
- Obtains a supply of marijuana in an amount greater than the amount authorized by the physician certification;
- Falsifies, alters, or otherwise modifies an identification card;
- Fails to timely notify the department of any changes to his or her qualified patient status; or
- Violates the requirements of this section or any rule adopted under this section
Additionally, the Department of Health has the legal authority to do the following:
- The department shall immediately suspend the registration of a qualified patient charged with a violation of chapter 893 until final disposition of any alleged offense. Thereafter, the department may extend the suspension, revoke the registration, or reinstate the registration.
- The department shall immediately suspend the registration of any caregiver charged with a violation of chapter 893 until final disposition of any alleged offense. The department shall revoke a caregiver registration if the caregiver does not meet the stipulated requirements.
- The department may revoke the registration of a qualified patient or caregiver who cultivates marijuana or who acquires, possesses, or delivers marijuana from any person or entity other than a medical marijuana treatment center.
- The department shall revoke the registration of a qualified patient, and the patient’s associated caregiver, upon notification that the patient no longer meets the criteria of a qualified patient.
