Pot doctor convicted of illegal recommendation

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A Loveland doctor who recommended medical marijuana for an undercover officer faces possible prison time. The Coloradoan reports Monday that 75-year-old Dr. Dallas Devere Williams has been convicted of attempting to influence a public servant.

Williams was charged after a 2012 examination of an undercover officer wearing a wire. The undercover officer said the aching foot he reported was never examined before Williams gave him paperwork to obtain a medical marijuana license. State law requires physicians recommending pot to have "bona fide" relationships with patients.

The Williams recommendation was made before Colorado's 2012 vote to legalize marijuana use without a doctor's recommendation.

Williams was convicted Friday in Larimer County. He faces a maximum penalty of two to six years in prison at sentencing Jan. 16.
