6-Year-Old Allowed to Ride School Bus With Cannabis Medicine

A new administrative court ruling requires a Northern California school district to allow a 6-year-old kindergartner with a severe form of epilepsy to ride the school bus with a prescribed cannabis oil-based pharmaceutical. The cannabidiol medicine is exclusively carried and administered by her LVN nurse upon onset of the girls epilepsy symptoms, including on the school bus she rides daily. The ruling could force student transporters nationwide to reevaluate current school district guidelines for transporting students with disabilities and special health care needs.
