Medical marijuana in schools

Despite the uncomfortable topic of allowing marijuana use in public schools, it has become obvious to nearly all legislators (HB 1095 passed easily in the House and Senate) that marijuana infused products are effective in treating medical conditions some students suffer while in school.  The only issue is the conditions the product can be used in the school setting.  These are the two most important conditions regarding such use:

…Requires school districts to permit a student who meets state law requirements to consume marijuana-infused products for medical purposes on school grounds, aboard a school bus, or while attending a school sponsored event.

…Directs school districts to adopt a policy to authorize parents or guardians to administer marijuana-infused products to a student upon request by a parent or guardian of a student who is a qualifying patient.
