Judge Allows 11-Year-old Girl to Use Medical Marijuana at School

Girl should be allowed to take medical marijuana at school: suit

CHICAGO- Illinois on Friday said it won't get in the way of an 11-year-old child whose parents want her to be allowed to use medical marijuana at school to regulate seizures, despite state laws that prohibit the use of prescription cannabis on public school grounds.

The commitment made to Judge John Blakey on Friday came two days after the student's parents sued Schaumburg-based District 54 and the state for the girl's right to take medical marijuana at school. "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".

Meantime, the family says it's time for the legislature to update and revise the medical marijuana law. In this instance, we can not legally grant the request from the parent because the Illinois' Medical Cannabis Pilot Program prohibits the possession or use of cannabis on school grounds. The lawsuit argues that the policy violates the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to the lawsuit filed in federal court on Wednesday.

"We do also share the same concerns and care about (A.S.) and her family in this situation", Schaumburg School District superintendent Andrew DuRoss told USA Today. An assistant attorney general told Blakey his office would allow the school to administer the drug until the office can figure out how to address the state law.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday against School District 54 and the state of IL, could have far-reaching implications. "The school would like to see legislative change so just not Ashley can benefit, but other students can as well". The law prohibits smoking the drug in school, but allows patches or tinctures, as long as it's not disruptive to classrooms.
