The district leaders of the Broward County Public School system have agreed to permit registered medical marijuana patients to receive their medicinals at school.

“There are many students who cannot function in the classroom or attend school because of their epilepsy and seizures, and this gives students an opportunity to have some normalcy in their lives,” board member Robin Bartleman told Local10.
The medications reportedly help students with cancer, epilepsy, HIV, AIDS, Parkinson’s disease or MS, along with other illnesses.
Marijuana remains federally illegal, causing concern that the federal government will hinder funding based on the new state-level guidelines.
