LOVELAND — A Loveland physician has been sentenced to serve three years of probation and 180 hours of community service after he recommended medical marijuana to an undercover police officer in 2012.
Dr. Dallas Williams was convicted of attempting to influence a public servant. An undercover officer said the aching foot he reported was never examined before Williams gave him paperwork to obtain a medical marijuana certificate.
Prosecutors said Williams' recommendation was made before Colorado's 2012 vote to legalize marijuana use without a doctor's recommendation.
