Hollywood Doctor Recommends Marijuana To Four-Year-Old

(Hollywood, CA-AP) — A California doctor is under fire for recommending that a four-year-old eat cannabis cookies to control his temper tantrums. California’s medical board reportedly revoked the medical license of Dr. William Eidelman of Hollywood on January 4th. However, Eidelman claims it’s still active and continues to practice.

The medical board determined that Eidelman was “grossly negligent” for saying the boy likely had a combination of ADD/ADHD and bipolar disorder after one 30-minute appointment. The board said Eidelman improperly diagnosed the young child and should have consulted a psychiatrist.
