Please don’t call him New Jersey’s top pot doctor. Or a preeminent weed specialist.
Never mind that Andrew Medvedovsky is fast becoming the face of marijuana doctors in the Garden State.
Medvedovsky, 35, a board-certified neurologist who specializes in pain management, has recommended cannabis to more than 3,000 patients for various ailments. Last week, he opened his fourth cannabis-patients-only clinic — in staid Moorestown, where restaurants not long ago had to obtain voter permission to serve liquor.
He testifies before lawmakers about ways to improve the medical-marijuana program; gives public speeches almost weekly on the benefits of cannabis; and provides nursing-school students the opportunity, and credits, to learn about a topic once dismissed as nonsense.
