In April 2019, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee signed House Bill 1095 in law, which would “require school districts to allow parents and guardians to administer to their child (who has a medical marijuana card) marijuana-infused medications on school grounds, in school vehicles and at school-sponsored activities,” according to a report by JD Supra. Schools first need to adopt a policy to permit such use, and the policy must comply with several requirements. Parents or guardians must also comply with any policies, rules, and regulations.

Washington state representative Brian Blake, who sponsored the bill, stated shared with news source KXRO “Like Ducky, there are other children in our state who struggle with seizures or other disorders and I am convinced that these bills will make their lives better.” He added, “It doesn’t have to be this way. We can help these kids so they can have the same opportunity to learn and enjoy school as any other Washington student.” Ducky is a 9-year-old boy who suffers from Batten disease, a genetic disorder.

There are several issues with the law, one of the most significant being that it “expands the state’s medical marijuana program despite federal prohibition,” explains the Tenth Amendment Center.
