Accommodations for School Attendance for Children Certified for the Medical Use of Marijuana

Accommodations for School Attendance for Children Certified for the Medical Use of Marijuana 

A child who holds a written certification for the medical use of marijuana may not be denied eligibility to attend school solely because the child requires medical marijuana in a nonsmokeable form as a reasonable accommodation necessary for the child to attend school.  The Act also allows primary caregivers to possess and administer marijuana in a nonsmokeable form in a school bus and on the grounds of a school in which a minor qualifying patient is enrolled.
