Virginia State Delegate Chris L. Hurst (D-12) has filed HB 1720 to allow students registered with Virginia’s medical cannabis program to use their medicine at school and school-sponsored activities.
If passed, the bill would prohibit a school board from suspending or expelling from school attendance a student who possesses or uses Virginia’s allowed medical cannabis oils on school property, on a school bus, or at a school-sponsored activity if they are a registered patient and maintain an unexpired written certification.
“We’ve received emails and calls from concerned parents throughout the Commonwealth who are worried their children could be expelled for using their doctor-recommended medical cannabis oil at school,” said Jenn Michelle Pedini, . “Delegate Hurst’s bill would provide a much-needed solution for these families.”
The bill does not provide explicit guidance as to how the medicine would be administered on school property.
