Medical marijuana to be given by parents or caregivers only

The Palm Beach County School District has proposed that only parents or caregivers be allowed to administer medical marijuana on school property. The proposal comes after the school district was sued in February 2019 by a Royal Palm Beach couple who were unable to leave work and return to the school to administer marijuana medication to their epileptic son during the day. The child is prescribed the medication three times per day to control seizures. However, both parents work 45 minutes away and it was their request for school personnel to administer the pills. The policy is set for vote in April 2019.
