School Nurse Give Medical Marijuana At School
Medical marijuana administration at school - school personnel administration. Under current law, a primary caregiver may possess and administer medical marijuana in a nonsmokeable form to a student while the student is at school. The act allows school personnel to also possess and administer medical marijuana in a nonsmokeable form to a student at school. The school may adopt policies regarding which school personnel can possess and administer the medical marijuana. The act provides school personnel protection from criminal prosecution if he or she possesses and administers medical marijuana to a student at school. Prior to administering the medical marijuana by school personnel, there must be a signed agreement between the principal and the student's parent or legal guardian, and the parent or legal guardian must submit the required documentation to the school.
The student's parent or primary caregiver shall deliver the student's medical marijuana to the person designated by the school as the person who secures the medical marijuana for the school day. The person who secures the medical marijuana shall place the medical marijuana in a locked storage container. The person who secures the medical marijuana shall return any unused medical marijuana to the student's parent at the end of the school day. The student shall not handle the medical marijuana on the grounds of the school, school bus, or school-sponsored event.
A school does not have to comply with the provisions of the act if it loses federal funding as a result and posts its decision not to comply on its website.
