Can naturopathic doctors prescribe drugs?

California naturopathic doctors can independently prescribe natural and synthetic hormones as well as injectable nutrients. Our doctors also have a supervision agreement with a medical doctor so they can prescribe pharmaceuticals. The supervising doctor does not need to be present, see the patient or sign off on prescriptions. Most other states that license NDs allow broad independent prescriptive rights, which reflects ND training. California law does not allow our doctors to prescribe medical cannabis.
