DetailsProposition 64 legalized recreational marijuana use in California. While Prop 64 did not allow students to use marijuana at school; practical implications have been significant and challenging for school districts. Additionally, in February of 2018, Senate Bill 1127 was introduced. This bill seeks to allow parents/guardians to administer medical marijuana to students, on campus, if the student has a medical recommendation for medical marijuana. This presentation addresses the issues school leaders need to understand to respond in this changing legal landscape.
• Interaction between medical marijuana and student discipline;
• Interaction between medical marijuana and disability laws;
• Current developments in the area of medical marijuana as it relates to school districts, including discussion of SB 1127, the bill currently before the California Legislature, which may allow students to take medical marijuana at school;
• Discussion of state laws from other states which allow for students to take medical marijuana at school; and
• Developments from the FDA as they relate to medical marijuana.
This workshop presents a framework for navigating the Education Code and legislation (pending and enacted), while providing practical insight for school districts.
