A southern Illinois doctor who works at a clinic where many patients try to access the state’s medical marijuana program has been subpoenaed in a state and federal investigation.
    
State officials told the Southern Illinoisan that the investigation is in response to alleged improper controlled substance prescriptions from Dr. Bodo Schneider.
