The state of Massachusetts has voted to suspend the license of a doctor who allegedly prescribed medical marijuana to the suspect in a crash that killed a trooper.
John Nadolny, the 57-year-old medical director of Canna Care Docs, a medical marijuana dispensary with several locations, is accused of improperly prescribing the drug on "multiple occasions."
David Njuguna of Webster appeared in court last week on charges of motor vehicle homicide in the death of Massachusetts State Police trooper Thomas Clardy.
Prosecutors say Njuguna went to a medical marijuana dispensary shortly before the crash and got three joints.

Police found one of those joints partially smoked and a second one missing from Njuguna's car, according to prosecutors.
"As of this point, he's not going to be able to prescribe to anybody, for the time being," Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said of the doctor.
