Pot doctor says he didn’t get a fair trial

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A Loveland doctor arrested after he recommended medical marijuana for an undercover officer says he did not get a fair trial.

Dr. Dallas Williams says he tried to explain there is no standard for pain and he was not allowed to present his evidence in court.

The Coloradoan reports (http://tinyurl.com/o94dwr7) Williams faces jail time after he was convicted of attempting to influence a public servant.

An undercover officer said the aching foot he reported was never examined before Williams gave him paperwork to obtain a medical marijuana license.

Prosecutors say Williams’ recommendation was made before Colorado’s 2012 vote to legalize marijuana use without a doctor’s recommendation.

Williams faces a maximum penalty of two to six years in prison at sentencing Jan. 16.
