An eye doctor on Philadelphia’s well-to-do Main Line is charged, along with his daughter, with growing and selling marijuana.
Acting on an anonymous tip, Haverford Township police on Wednesday said they raided the home of 58-year-old Dr. Paul Ezell and confiscated 27 marijuana plants in various stages of growth.
Police said they also seized $1,200 in cash, cell phones, grow lights, scales and dried marijuana.
Ezell, a board-certified ophthalmologist trained at Wills Eye Hospital, and his 23-year-old daughter Victoria Ezell are facing multiple drug-related charges. It could not be immediately determined if they had attorneys.
Medical marijuana is used as a treatment for glaucoma. Authorities did not say whether the alleged drug operation was intended for Ezell’s glaucoma patients.
