An 11 year-old girl with leukemia sued her facile school after they banned her from holding medical pot that she was prescribed.
The tyro identified in justice papers only as A.S., suffers from epilepsy and seizures as a outcome of chemotherapy, and was given pot rags and drops to help soothe her symptoms.
But she was banned from holding them at her school, in Chicago’s Schaumburg district, since of a state law that forbids possession or use of weed on school skill or buses.
Both enclose THC, the member of pot that can make users high.
The girl’s parents, named as J.S. and M.S. contend that violates laws designed to strengthen infirm Americans from discrimination, reports the Chicago Tribune.
They also contend that denying her daughter the piece means she takes some-more time off school with illness, breaking a state law which requires her to go to school.
Superintendent Andy DuRoss pronounced officials were operative to accommodate the girl as best they could within the law – but combined the school would approve with whatever the justice ruled.
He said: ‘We can't legally extend the request.
‘We’re going to reside by the law and do the best to support the students within the proportions of the law.’
He combined that the district will approve with whatever is systematic by the courts, with the groundbreaking conference holding place Friday.
