Delaware Governor Signs Bill Allowing Medical Cannabis Use on School Grounds

Legislation (Senate Bill 181) allowing medical cannabis patients to use their medicine while on school grounds has been signed into law by Delaware Governor Jack Markell.

SB 181 authorizes patient caregivers to administer cannabis-based medicines such as tinctures and oils to a patient in a “school bus and on the grounds or property of the preschool, or primary or secondary school in which a minor qualifying patient is enrolled.”

“The law is similar to legislation adopted in Colorado and New Jersey – the only two other jurisdictions that explicitly permit qualified patients to utilize cannabis preparations while on school campuses”, says Danielle Keane, Political Director for the National Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).

The new law took effect immediately following Markell’s signature.

    I think that is great that they passed that bill. It will allow the kids that need it the medicine when they need it. Thanks for sharing!
