Records of some patients who use marijuana delivery service Eaze may have been accessed

Some patient records of medical marijuana delivery service Eaze may have fallen into the wrong hands.

The records of a physician affiliated with Eaze were improperly accessed by one of that doctor's former employees. Eaze confirmed the issue in a statement to Axios, saying it has revoked the access of the physician involved, Don Davidson.

We became aware on Monday, June 26 that a third party doctor that employs the EazeMD technology – Dr. Davidson MD - experienced unauthorized access by a former employee to patient data in their electronic medical records system. The issue has been reported to law enforcement and the doctor's office is working with an independent security firm to assess the full extent of the impact.
We have no evidence to suggest that Eaze's systems were compromised.There is nothing more important to Eaze than the trust of our users. The office's access to the platform was immediately revoked. More information about the breach is available at https://forum.dondavidsonmd.com/t/63z2p0/notification-about-security-incident

Eaze doesn't actually grow or deliver the pot, instead serving as a technology platform connecting dispensaries and clients. In addition to arranging marijuana delivery, Eaze has a service, EazeMD, that connects people with a doctor who can prescribe medical marijuana. Davidson was a part of that.

Why it matters: It draws attention to the fact that with online services come online records, all the more concerning if what one is buying is marijuana.
