The Denver Post reports

Four Colorado doctors had their licenses suspended Tuesday after the state Board of Medicine alleged the doctors improperly recommended excessive plant counts to more than 1,500 medical marijuana patients.

All of the recommendations involved approvals for patients to grow or possess at least 75 plants. The standard plant count for medical marijuana patients is six plants, and state health officials have long threatened to crack down on doctors who they believe recommend higher amounts without sufficient justification.

The suspended doctors are:

  • Dr. Gentry Dunlop, of Aurora, who was first licensed to practice medicine in Colorado in 1988
  • Dr. Robert Maiocco, of Denver, who was first licensed to practice medicine in Colorado in 1997
  • Dr. Deborah Parr, of Durango, who was first licensed to practice medicine in Colorado in 2009
  • Dr. William Stone, of Colorado Springs, who was first licensed to practice medicine in Colorado in 2010

Suspension documents for each say the punishments will last “until resolution of this matter.” Dunlop is accused of issuing medical marijuana recommendations authorizing 75 or more plants to at least 700 patients. Maiocco is accused of making such recommendations to at least 190 patients, Parr to at least 300 patients and Stone to at least 400 patients.
