Spread the love

Medical marijuana could be given by school nurses in Colorado.

Colorado is considering a new bill introduced on March 8 that would allow school nurses to administer medical marijuana. The first draft of Bill HB18-1286 requires the student to have a valid medical marijuana recommendation. The marijuana must be a non-smokeable form, and cannot be smoked or vaped. This would apply to preschool, primary, and secondary schools.

Rep. Dylan Roberts (D), Sen. Irene Aguilar (D), and Sen. Vicki Marble (R) are sponsoring the bill, details Fox Denver. Currently, primary caregivers can administer medical marijuana to Colorado students, but this new bill would allow school nurses to do the same.

For a Colorado minor to qualify for medical marijuana, he or she must have a qualifying medical condition. According to the state’s Department of Public Health & Environment, these conditions include cancer, glaucoma, and HIV or AIDS. Also, seizures, severe nausea, and severe pain are on the list.

Meanwhile, other states are tackling the issue of medical marijuana in schools, like Illinois, California, and Florida.
