Colorado’s new legislation expands entry to medical hashish in colleges

Governor: Colorado “Is Finally Treating Cannabis Like Other Prescription Drugs”.

Governor Jared Polis signed a new law on Wednesday expanding access to and use of cannabis-based medicine in schools, a move he said was overdue.

Bipartisan Act SB21-56 removes the power that school principals must or must not currently allow the storage and administration on school premises of non-smokable cannabis-based medicines used to treat seizures and other illnesses.

Once the new law goes into effect this fall, school authorities will have to implement guidelines that allow school staff to store and administer this medicine on school premises. Any school employee who feels uncomfortable performing these duties can reuse themselves, the new law states, but officials cannot exempt entire schools from the law.
