Yes, in certain states only. Three states in the union allow Notaries to perform marriage ceremonies: Maine, Florida and South Carolina. West Feliciana Parish in Louisiana also grants authority to perform marriages to its Notaries.

Can a Notary knowingly stamps a document knowing that the person is incoherent?

No. The whole purpose of the notary is to ensure that the person signing the document is competent and knows what they are signing. That is why a notary can not notarize a document unless the signer is in the physical presence of the notary. If a notary affixes his or her stamp to a document, knowing that the person is incoherent and does not understand the document, the notary is guilty of a felony in most states.
