OLYMPIA, WA — Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee has signed legislation, House Bill 1095, permitting qualified patients access to cannabis-infused products while on school grounds.
The new law explicitly permits parents or guardians “to administer marijuana-infused products to the student while the student is on school grounds.”
It also mandates that school districts “permit a student [who is a qualified medical cannabis patient] to consume marijuana-infused products … on school grounds, aboard a school bus, or while attending a school-sponsored event.”
The new law goes into effect on July 27, 2019.
Children can now take medical marijuana at school, thanks to new law just signed by @GovInslee. The man in the green behind the Gov., John Barclay, fought for law bc of his daughter, River. She was too ill to attend the bill signing. #waleg pic.twitter.com/vgz1RrXt68
