CHICAGO (AP) - State regulators allege a doctor misled potential patients by offering "pre-approval" for medical marijuana through a Chicago clinic.
The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation filed a complaint Monday against Dr. Brian Murray, who has an active medical license, and a co-worker. Murray has been charged with violating the Medical Practice Act and faces revocation of his license.
The general manager with Good Intentions clinic said Tuesday that the allegations are baseless and anti-patient.
Illinois legalized medical marijuana this year. The law takes effect in January but medical marijuana won't be available for months as rules are worked out. The law says patients must have a serious medical condition and an established doctor relationship.
The complaint alleges the clinic offered potential patients early approval for a $99 registration fee.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A new audit questions whether hundreds of Missouri welfare recipients are living out of state or using benefits for alcohol, tobacco and gambling.
The report released Tuesday by State Auditor Tom Schweich (shwych) looks at about $96 million of benefits paid through electronic cards in 2012 for a program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
The audit found 366 cases in which recipients used a total of $461,000 of benefits exclusively out of state for at least three months. Although nothing prohibits out of state use, the report says that may indicate the welfare recipients no longer live in Missouri.
The audit also found about 1,600 cases in which $261,000 of benefits were used at locations appearing to be associated with alcohol, tobacco, gambling or adult entertainment.
