Colorado House OKs Bill to Let School Nurses Administer Medical Marijuana

DENVER (CN) – A bill that would allow school nurses to administer medical marijuana to students passed the Colorado House 47-17.  The bill is sponsored by state Sen. Irene Aguilar, a Democrat, and Republican state Rep. Dylan Roberts.

 Medical marijuana is one of few issues that enjoys bipartisan support, according to a recent Pew Research poll that found 6 in 10 Americans support its use. Whether to allow cannabis into the classroom, however, has been a subject of debate.
