DENVER (AP) — A new Colorado law allowing medical marijuana use at public schools is getting a second look. That's because no school districts are allowing it, even though the law says they can.
A bill up for its first vote in a state House committee Monday would make Colorado the second state to require schools to allow nurses or caregivers to administer medical pot.
Supporters of the bill say that school districts are dragging their feet on allowing school nurses to give cannabis-based oils or allow students to wear cannabis patches. The law does not allow the use of smoked marijuana on a school campus.
The state Department of Education is neutral on the marijuana requirement. But some school officials oppose it, saying it could endanger federal school funding.
