UCSD Neurosurgeon Used Pot at Work, State Medical Board Claims
A California doctor is accused of using pot while at work and on call.
A complaint filed by the Medical Board of California alleges that University of California, San Diego neurosurgeon Dr. Gunjan Goel uses pot daily – even on the job.
Investigators asked the doctor for a hair sample, and she allegedly told them that she uses pot on her days off. She also admitted that she doesn’t have a medical marijuana card.
The medical board accused her of “repeatedly” possessing a controlled substance and engaging in unprofessional conduct.
Attempts by NBC 7 to reach Goel on Thursday evening were unsuccessful. A representative for UC San Diego declined comment, saying it’s still just an accusation.
