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

Friday marked a victory in a suburban couple's battle to allow their 11-year-old daughter to take medical marijuana at school.

District 54 Superintendent Andy DuRoss told The Chicago Tribune school officials are just following state law, which prohibits them from allowing pot on school grounds.

The parents of a girl who attends elementary school in Schaumburg, IL, have filed a lawsuit against both the state and the school district, arguing that it is essential that their daughter be able to medicate with marijuana on school grounds.

Although she is now leukemia-free, the medicinal marijuana is meant to treat her seizures. They say it denies the right to due process and violates the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Traditional treatments have failed to curtail the seizures, but a year ago doctors prescribed A.S.as cannabis patch.

The family wants a preliminary order that would allow her to wear the patch and get the cannabis oil drops, USA Today reported. "Her ability, her behavior in general, her whole character, her wellness is completely different". A judge has set a hearing for Friday. The attorney for Ashley's school district says this decision could help other students.

The school district said it had concerns that its employees could face penalties for helping Ashley with her treatments. "But we can not legally grant the request that was made due to the rules of the IL medical cannabis act".

School district officials said they will administer cannabis to the student until they get further clarification from the attorney general.

Glink said that the IL case is somewhat analogous to a situation in Colorado, where a public school student successfully lobbied the state legislature to amend Colorado's medical marijuana law to permit its use in states school.

He tells CBS 2's Dana Kozlov the girl needs a medical cannabis patch and drops to help counteract seizures.

Lawyers for the school district and Attorney General's Office are expected to meet back in court next week to work on a longer-term approval plan for Ashley and the school.
