A Rhode Island doctor is in trouble for handing out medical marijuana cards to teenagers.

The Department of Health says Doctor Soneath Pond, who has an office in Warwick, gave medical marijuana certifications to two 16–year–old girls without checking with their other doctors to make sure marijuana was the right treatment.

Doctor Pond was reprimanded by the state.
