In wake of new law, schools consider policies allowing medical pot at school

In wake of new law, schools consider policies allowing medical pot at school

Sep 4, 2019

The state legislature and governor approved a new law that allows medical marijuana products in schools.

The law, which went into effect at the end of July, requires the student to be a qualifying patient under Washington’s medical marijuana law and have parental permission. If a parent of such a student requests to be able to give their child marijuana-infused products for medical purposes at school, it is then up to the school district to come up with a policy to accommodate the student.

That policy must require that parents go to school grounds, a school bus or a school-sponsored event and administer the marijuana-infused product to the student.  The smoking or inhalation of marijuana is not allowed.
