Medical marijuana caregivers are under scrutiny from state health authorities.
A task force for the state health department starts work Wednesday on how to determine that a caregiver has “significant responsibility” for a patient.
The change is part of a state law and is designed to cut down on sham caregiver designations in which a caregiver doers nothing more than sell pot to the patient.
The panel is also taking up a dispute over which doctors can recommend pot and how to add new ailments to the list of conditions that qualifies a patient for marijuana.
The hearing will include brief public testimony.
