California Doctor Loses Medical License After Prescribing Marijuana to 4-Year-Old

A doctor in Los Angeles, California, has had his medical license revoked after he reportedly prescribed marijuana to a four-year-old.

Dr. William Eidelman, a natural medicine physician, reportedly diagnosed the child with ADHD and bipolar disorder after his father brought him in after multiple instances of him acting out. For treatment, he then reportedly offer medical marijuana cookies. 

According to the board review, the child was not demonstrating abnormal nervousness or agitation and say they did not believe him to have ADHD. The board found Eidelman “grossly negligent” for determining the boy’s diagnosis without consulting a psychiatrist, collecting information from the boy’s teachers, or asking his father about the child’s moods and sleep patterns.
