This is the RCW from Washington States 

I have also read the Advisory Opinion from the Department of Health, Nursing Care Quality Assurance Opinion FDA prescription cannabis/marijuana-derived products is in the scope of practice but if it is not FDA approved then it is not in the scope of practice.   There are so many things to consider so this is very confusing.

Regardless of the law, does it need to be given in school? Is the dosing such that the kiddos can get it before and/or after school?

This is how parents rewrite policies, forget logic here. This is about agenda, not what makes sense.

The Districts have to adopt a policy that allows but to follow the law it will be difficult for the parents to actually do so they will probably just stick with at home use.  This is not FDA approve medication.

It is PRN for seizures, so no.

Ok, realizing this is a moot point because you've been told no by legal....

Does this student have anything else that is clinically indicated to work (Diastat, intranasal midazolam) for seizures?

Because while there seems to be anecdotal evidence that some medical marijuana may impact seizures I have never, ever read that it can be used "as needed."

Oy.

Oy.

This is the only medication I've seen ordered for PRN seizures. The student takes Zonisamide daily.
