Summary

Under current law, school districts must permit primary caregivers
to possess and administer cannabis-based medicine on school grounds
and school principals are given the discretion to permit the storage,
possession, and administration of cannabis-based medicine on school
grounds by school personnel. The bill removes the discretion from the

school principals and requires school boards to implement policies
allowing for the storage, possession, and administration of
cannabis-based medicine by school personnel. The bill allows school
personnel to volunteer to possess, administer, or assist in administration
of cannabis-based medicine and protects those who do from retaliation.
The bill imposes a duty on school principals to create a written treatment
plan for the administration of cannabis-based medicine and on school
boards to adopt policies regarding actual administration.
The bill provides disciplinary protection to nurses who administer
cannabis-based medicine to students at school. The bill requires schools
to treat cannabis-based medicine recommendations like prescriptions.
