Naturopathic physician’s license suspended for allegedly selling marijuana

The state has suspended the license of Yuel Luncheon Boyce, a naturopathic physician with practices in Whatcom and King counties, who has been charged with using his license to sell marijuana.

The Board of Naturopathy and the Washington State Department of Health allege that Boyce authorized patients to use medical marijuana without providing care or treatment, and that he provided marijuana products, including peanut butter cups infused with marijuana, after being given cash payments.

In its statement of charges, the board said Boyce failed to determine whether patients were qualified under state law to use medical marijuana. The board said Boyce used his license “in order to profit from patients seeking medical authorizations without actually providing naturopathic care or treatment,” and to distribute marijuana products.

Boyce, who was licensed in the state in 2010, has 20 days to request a hearing with the board, and may not practice until charges are resolved.
