Dr. David Advocates for Medical Cannabis

February 8, 2017

Dr. David Berger, a Tampa pediatrician who runs Family Medical Cannabis Clinic, told the group he is concerned that a state board of medicine would be involved in a decision about who he can prescribe the drug to.

“The board of medicine [has] never been in a consultation with me and my patient. They may not know anything about that patient and they may not know anything about that patient’s condition,” said Dr. Berger.
