A doctor in Regina has been charged with professional misconduct after allegedly trading his ex weed in an effort to reclaim his Bose speakers, the CBC reports.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan claims that the family physician, who they identified as Dr. Ian Cowan, supplied weed to his ex or another person, violating the Medical Professional Act.

Instead of simply purchasing the same mediocre speakers on his doctor's salary, or perhaps taking the opportunity to purchase better speakers (also on his doctor's salary), the incident has Cowen facing three charges related to the violation, including one apparently stemming from 2011.

The other two charges include leaving patient records laying around and prescribing medical marijuana to a patient before allegedly buying it back from the same patient, indicating an alleged cycle of poor purchases extending beyond taste in speakers.

Cowan was suspended for two months in 2001 after entering a guilty plea for prescribing medications with someone he was having sexual relations with, according to the College of Physicians report.

The Bose speakers in question were not immediately identified, but they were presumably on the higher end of the mid-range home entertainment system scale, otherwise wtf.
