Get high with the Marijuana Doctor

💬 comments

This one had us chortling for a good while. The Marijuana Doctor? If you were hoping for an actual doctor, i.e. a physician, you're out of luck. Marijuana Doctor Nerfis Elminowski joins the ever-increasing ranks of Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree holders (ab)using their "doctorate" as justification for calling themselves doctors in clinical contexts and subsequently misleading patients and blurring the line between physicians and lesser-trained midlevels.

The introductory blurb is also pretty funny. "As a child, Dr. Elminowski already knew that she wanted to be a medical provider." Can you imagine a child growing up wanted to be a "provider"? What does that even mean? Sounds like she should've taken up a career in healthcare administration instead!
