State Education officials to help schools navigate medical marijuana issues

Schools will have to deal with kids and prescribed medical marijuana this fall. That after voters approved Initiated Measure-26 last November. The state Board of Education Standards approved the first set of rules for its use last week.

Wade Pogany, Executive Director of the Associated School Boards of South Dakota, said the board and Department of Education had to find a balance.

Pogany said they were involved in the rules writing process.

Pogany said they will help school districts implement the rules.

While the law is effective on July first, providers won’t prescribe medical marijuana until late October.
