The Newest: AG: Lady can use medical marijuana at college

The Newest: AG: Lady can use medical marijuana at college

Earlier this week, parents of a suburban Chicago elementary school student suffering from leukemia sued a Schaumburg-based school district and the state of IL for her to have the right to take medical marijuana at school.

"We do also share the same concerns and care about (A.S.) and her family in this situation", Schaumburg School District superintendent Andrew DuRoss told USA Today.

The Illinois Attorney General agreed not to prosecute, and the school district said its goal was to have Surin back in the classroom with no legal consequences for staff who administer the medicine.

Ashley Surin, 11, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was two years old. The district even requested that school officials be allowed to administer the marijuana treatments but state officials reiterated that medical marijuana is not permitted on school grounds. "And now she can think clearer and she's more alert". The district would not accommodate them, the suit said. The lawsuit says that as a result, the girl suffers seizure disorders and epilepsy. The parents are now suing the school district and the state, saying those laws are unconstitutional and violate the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). "She can interact, and can go back to school and learn and not be in a cloud".

Stephenson entered the game with 5:52 left in the third quarter when 6-foot-11 center Domantas Sabonis picked up his fourth foul. If Cleveland holds that percentage, they will break their previous mark of.805 from the line, set during the 1991-92 season.

Ashley has been attending school off and on depending on her condition but likely won't be able to continue without her medication, which would be in conflict with a state law requiring children to go to school, said her attorney, Steve Glink.

The lawsuit notes her physicians have certified her to receive medical marijuana to treat the epilepsy.

While medical marijuana is legal in IL, it is against the law for students to use it in school or have school nurses administer it. An assistant attorney general told Blakey his office would allow the school to administer the drug until his office can figure out how to address the state law. The Surin's said Ashley has improved dramatically since she has been getting the medical marijuana treatments.
