.-Cannabis Coming to Schools in Washington?
The parent of a 7-year-old medical marijuana patient is pushing to be allowed to give medication to their child on school grounds. The parent, John Barclay, currently has to pick up his daughter from school at lunch time in order to take her home and give her medication at home. This is disruptive to her education, he argues. The cannabis medication is “liquid gold,” according to Barclay. River, his daughter, suffers from seizures and cannabis has been the only thing that reliably treats them. River is given non-psychoactive CBD edibles in order to treat her seizures, but she needs a second dose at noon. A bill has been proposed in Olympia that would allow giving medical marijuana on school grounds. Consequently children that meet the state’s rules to be a medical marijuana patient would be affected.
