  • Schoolgirl with cancer sues elementary school for banning her medical marijuana

"Both state and Federal law prohibit the possession or use of cannabis in any form on school grounds or on school buses - and it's not reasonable to think - with the advances in medication that we can't serve children with medications as they develop over time", school district attorney Darcy Kriha said.

Friday marked a victory in a suburban couple's battle to allow their 11-year-old daughter to take medical marijuana at school. School district officials said Friday they will administer cannabis to the sixth grader until they get further clarification from the attorney general. Her parents spent several years using "traditional" medications to deal with her seizure disorder but nothing worked, according to a federal lawsuit.

Ashley Surin, 11, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was two years old.

The girl, referred to as A.S.in court documents, now wears a medical marijuana patch on her foot.

"She's more responsive", Surin said. A recent prescription for medical marijuana is illegal in some places in IL, including her Schaumburg school.

"We do also share the same concerns and care about (A.S.) and her family in this situation", he said. That is when the girl uses cannabis oil drops with small amounts of THC on her tongue or wrists to regulate her epilepsy. Superintendent Andy DuRoss says School District 54 will abide by the law.

Although she is now leukemia-free, her doctors have certified her to use medicinal marijuana to treat her seizures.

Finally, the girl's uncle, "conservatarian" podcaster Mike Opelka, penned a moving insider piece about his niece's struggle to "use medical marijuana in grammar school".

A lawyer for the school district said Schaumburg District #54 owes a debt of gratitude to Ashley's family for bringing the issue to light. Jack, who had cerebral palsy, died in 2016.

"What people seem to misunderstand here is that medical marijuana is a prescription like any other drug", Glink said. The child suffers from seizures following a battle with leukemia. The cannabis, combined with a special diet, are helping Ashley lead a better life, according to her mother.
