Lawmakers Ok Medical Cannabis in Schools

California lawmakers have passed legislation that would allow medical marijuana patients to use medically-prescribed cannabis products on campus grounds if a school does not object. If signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, the new law would solve a major dilemma that has existed for young cannabis patients since the 1990s.

The legislation would still prohibit smoking or vaping of marijuana on school grounds. CBD capsules or oils, however, could be administered by parents if a public school district chooses to allow it.

Schools would not be forced to adhere to the policy under the bill. Teachers and staff would not be responsible for administering the medication and students must have a verified prescription.
