Thanks to the recent enactment of Bill 4587, Larc School a school for disabled children, takes a big step in the growing marijuana movement.
The elementary school has announced their motion to allow its students to use medicinal marijuana legally to alleviate their symptoms. With this motion passed, it makes Larc School the first and only school in the educational system to recognize medical marijuana as a holistic alternative to over the counter prescription drugs for disabled children.
Per New Jersey Assembly Bill 4587: “1. (New section) a. A board of education or chief school administrator of a nonpublic school shall develop a policy authorizing parents, guardians, and primary caregivers to administer medical marijuana to a student while the student is on school grounds, aboard a school bus, or attending a school-sponsored event.”
Larc School, specializing in helping children “suffering from a wide range of disabilities”, agreed to new guidelines for its students to use medical marijuana on Wednesday night. This historic decision came only a few short days after New Jersey’s Gov. signed A4587. With Chris Christie signature at the bottom of A4587, private schools and their instructors in the Garden State are now protected from any legal ramifications should a sick or disabled student consume medical marijuana during school hours.
