Gabriel Eckert/iStock/Thinkstock(DENVER) — A Colorado lawmaker says it’s time that children who are prescribed medical marijuana be allowed to use that marijuana at school.
The push began when a school in Jefferson County, Colorado, told a 14-year-old boy who suffers from cerebral palsy and relies on a cannabis patch along with low-THC oil to treat muscle spasms that he could no longer have access to his medication on campus because it was marijuana.
State Representative Jonathan Singer wants medical marijuana administered the same way as drugs like Adderall and Ritalin.
“If we can do this for heavy narcotics we can certainly do it for medical marijuana,” he said.
Singer is now working on a proposal that would change the law to allow children access to prescribed medical marijuana at Colorado schools.
