Girl, 11, Can Use Medical Marijuana at School, Judge Says

The parents of an 11-year-old girl suffering from leukemia are suing a school district and the state of IL for not allowing their daughter to take medical marijuana at school. The court case was continued until next Friday. Since getting her state medical marijuana card the first week of December, Ashley has been wearing a patch on her foot and rubbing marijuana oil on her wrist.
He said two doctors must approve medical marijuana for kids under 18, so that medical professionals ultimately decide who qualifies, not lawmakers. "We have to fight for her right to go to school, her right to have medicine there, just like the next kid has insulin and an Epipen and Tylenol". An assistant attorney general told Blakey his office would allow the school to administer the drug until his office can figure out how to address the state law.
Doctors prescribed her medical marijuana at the end of 2017 to treat the seizures, however Illinois' medical cannabis law prohibits the use or possession of marijuana on school grounds.

The family asked the school district to store the medical marijuana on school grounds at Hanover Highlands Elementary in case it was necessary during the school day.
They also contend that denying her daughter the substance means she takes more time off school with illness, breaking a state law which requires her to go to school. The district, with more than 15,000 elementary school students, helps more than 1,700 of its students administer prescriptions and school officials are confident they can safely assist Ashley as needed with medical cannabis, Kriha said.
