Lawsuit filed to allow medical marijuana use in school

Schoolgirl with cancer sues elementary school for banning her medical marijuana

The state of IL prohibits the use of medical marijuana on public school property. On Friday, the state's Attorney General Office assured the Surins and the Schaumburg, Illinois School District 54 that Ashley could use medical marijuana without fear of prosecution.

The parents of a child battling leukemia are suing the state of IL to allow their daughter the ability to use medical marijuana at school.

The girl's parents sued a Schaumburg-based school district and the state of IL for her to have the right to take medical marijuana at school. She might have to leave school if she is not accommodated, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Ashley has suffered from seizures for years. The girl, only identified in the lawsuit as "A.S.", is on a regimen of chemotherapy to treat her Leukemia. For months a year ago, Ashley had to use a wheelchair after hitting her head during a particularly bad seizure. Cannabis oil drops help her get through the school day, according to the lawsuit obtained by USA Today. She can viably attend school, ' he added.

Officials of nursing organizations generally did not want nurses to administer the drug at schools, as they do with other medications, because they were anxious about the federal law prohibiting marijuana possession, said the sponsor of the law, Colorado state Rep. Jonathan Springer, a Democrat. "It hasn't caught up with reality".

But she was forbidden from taking them at her school, in Chicago's Schaumburg district, because of a state law that forbids possession or use of weed on school property or buses.

The family claims that banning their daughter from using medical marijuana at school is unconstitutional and violates the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In the month since she began using a cannabis patch, she has only suffered one major seizure, he father said. She can think more clearly, concentrate and speak longer sentences because she is taking the marijuana oil, her parents said. "She is more aware of her surroundings".

Now the family is taking the school district to court. Her family says it's working very well. Ultimately, she said, state legislators need to come up with a permanent fix.

Traditional treatments have failed to curtail the seizures, but previous year doctors prescribed A.S.as cannabis patch. In Colorado, where voters authorized medical marijuana in 2000, lawmakers let schools allow the drug for medical use, but no schools did so initially.

Colorado amended its law in 2015. The measure was called Jack's Law, for Jack Splitt, a 15-year-old with cerebral palsy who died that year, after the law was passed.
