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.

Medical marijuana helps an 11-year-old girl deal with seizures.

. "And now she can think clearer and she's more alert".

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.

The lawsuit points out the patch is occasionally ineffective in controlling her seizures.

The family agrees. They said the state's current medical marijuana laws do not meet reality.

The parents of a suburban Chicago elementary school student suffering from leukemia are suing a Schaumburg-based school district and the state of IL for her to have the right to take medical marijuana at school.

She'd gone through chemotherapy to treat her leukemia, and became epileptic as a result.

While medical marijuana is legal in IL, it is against the law for students to use it in school or have school nurses administer it. Jack, who had cerebral palsy, died in 2016. The law prohibits smoking the drug in school, but allows patches or tinctures, as long as it's not disruptive to classrooms.

That was when the girl was treated with traditional medications.
