Colorado Senate Approves Bill Allowing School Nurses to Give Medical Marijuana to Patients
Author: Anthony Martinelli  12/04/2018 - 18:26:00

Legislation that would make it legal for school nurses to give medical marijuana to students who are registered patients has been passed by Colorado’s full Senate.

House Bill 1286 was passed today through its third and final reading in the Senate; the vote was 47 to 17. The measure now moves to the House of Representatives, where passage would send it to the desk of Governor John Hickenlooper.

According to the official summary of House Bill 1286; “Under current law, a primary caregiver may possess and administer medical marijuana in a nonsmokeable form to a student while the student is at school. The bill allows a school nurse or the school nurse’s designee, who may or may not be an employee of the school, to also possess and administer medical marijuana to a student at school.” The bill “provides a school nurse or the school nurse’s designee protection from criminal prosecution if he or she possesses and administers medical marijuana to a student at school.”
