Overcoming medical licensing issues in Pennsylvania

As a Pennsylvania medical physician, nurse or practitioner, your professional reputation is likely a key factor to your success. Many medical professionals have built successful and lucrative careers through word-of-mouth recommendations from patients. To the contrary, if the public learns that you have been called to a disciplinary hearing regarding medical licensing and your ability to continue to practice medicine throughout the state, it can have serious long-lasting consequences even if you obtain positive results.

The debate over whether to legalize marijuana has been a hot topic across the country in recent years. Advocates of legalization boast the benefits of the drug, praising it as a natural treatment for chronic pain as well as a way to control or reduce symptoms connected to other diseases, including multiple sclerosis, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Meanwhile, critics point to its detriments, citing impaired cognitive function and short-term memory as well as risk of addiction.
