... but if a state medical board confirms lies on the application this could be grounds for suspension of license...

Unfortunately its not as simple as that sounds. There have been multiple applications where this person blatantly lied about their addiction problem. The catch is, ironically, they were filed BEFORE they admitted the problem and went in for treatment (for what is now the 3rd time). The license/privaledges can only be revoked if they are caught NOW impaired.

Sounds a little like circular reasoning and I'm sure its to avoid potential law suits.
