A doctor in the Cadillac area has been charged with putting false information on medical charts to qualify people for medical marijuana.
Dr. Edward Harwell appeared Wednesday in Wexford County District Court. The case comes five months after the state attorney general's office filed a professional misconduct complaint against him with the Board of Medicine.
The criminal charges are the result of an undercover investigation. The 76-year-old Harwell has operated clinics in Cadillac and Ann Arbor. A message seeking comment was left with his attorney.
The misconduct complaint accuses Harwell of failing to properly evaluate patients who paid to get his approval for medical marijuana. The next hearing in that matter is March 26.
