Cannabis on Education Campuses: Updates and Considerations for College, University and K-12 Administrators

Cannabis on Education Campuses: Updates and Considerations for College, University and K-12 Administrators
June 27, 2019

The cannabis legal and regulatory landscape continues to change on an almost daily basis. This constant state of flux raises a multitude of questions and concerns for administrators in colleges, universities and K-12 institutions alike. For example, most higher education institutions throughout the nation have policies in place that prohibit the possession, distribution, and consumption of marijuana on campus, as required by the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA). However, as states continue to authorize cannabis for medical as well as adult-use (recreational), institutions must determine how they will respond.

This webinar will answer the following key questions, among others:

  • How have educational institutions in states where cannabis has been authorized for medical use, or medical and adult-use been addressing this subject to-date?
  • What are the considerations schools need to be mindful of with regards to the conflict between the federally illegal status of cannabis and the individual states’ authorizations? Particularly around student rights and federal funding.
  • What type of accommodations, if any, need to be made for those students with a medical marijuana card?
  • If a student is caught using federally-illegal drugs by a school official, what action(s) will, or are allowed to, be taken by the school?

Please join us for this one-hour educational webinar on June 27.  We look forward to seeing you.
