Delaware Gov. Jack Markell signed a bill into law yesterday that will allow the state’s students with medical prescriptions to use pot oil at school.

In the presence of guardians and caretakers, nurses at public and private schools from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade will be able to administer cannabis oil to children with prescriptions anywhere on school property, including on buses.

State Sen. Ernesto Lopez served as the primary sponsor of the bill, an extension of Rylie’s Law, which first made it possible for doctors to prescribe pot oil to children in the state.

The medical marijuana oil is available to children with intractable epilepsy and certain muscle disorders, among other conditions.

“In Delaware we always want to be first, and in this particular instance we’re moving forward and making sure our kids have the best access to quality medicine and healthcare – that’s what it’s all about at the end of the day,” Lopez told.
