Senate Bill 181: New Legislation Seeks to Allow Cannabis Oil for Children In Delaware Schools

1

Understanding that epileptic seizures in children don’t necessarily happen when it’s convenient. A newly introduced piece of legislation, Delaware’s Senate bill 181, would allow schools in the Small Wonder state to keep on hand and permit the administration of cannabis oil for those students in need.

If passed, Senate Bill 181 would permit authorized caregivers to possess and dispense cannabis oil to pupils who require the cannabinoid rich treatment for quieting their hard to manage epilepsy.

Joining Maine and New Jersey in showing compassion towards children, Delaware’s newly proposed piece of legislation was an afterthought of a bill passed last year, which allowed a minute subset of schoolchildren to enroll in Delaware’s medical marijuana program. Explicitly permitting kids with life altering epilepsy to receive treatment via the non-psychoactive cannabis oil.

According to Sen. Ernie Lopez, (R-Lewes) who spoke with the Delmarva Daily Times:

“If there is a parent chaperoning a field trip … that parent should be able to administer those oils to that (qualified) child”. Explaining, “I think right now, more than anything else, it’s hard for me to criticize anyone who’s trying to find the wellness of a child.”

Agreed.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.

  1. I think, to the words of Sen. Ernie Lopez is nothing more to add !
    Especially, because in this case it´s not going about students who wanna smoke for own happiness during schooltime – it´s about Kids who need their medication and their treatment to be able to solve their “handicaps” even or especially(!) in school.
    I hope to see more news like this in the future.
    But it is going into the right direction step by step…
