School authorities face a dilemma now that marijuana is being prescribed to treat ADHD, legitimating its presence in lockers and classrooms across 14 states. “A high school student found to have marijuana in the classroom would seem to be a prime candidate for a little ‘talk’ with the vice principal – and maybe a trip to the police station. But around the country today, hundreds – perhaps thousands – of high schoolers are bringing pot to school, and they’re doing it legally. Not to get stoned, but as part of prescribed medical treatment. And they don’t have to tell school authorities about it. This is putting teachers and principals in a new and challenging position. In many counties and school districts, there are no clear guidelines – for school officials, students, or parents. ‘This is all just kind of starting to happen,’ high school principal Jeff Schlecht told the Ashland Daily Tidings in Oregon. ‘It does place us in an awkward position.’ For many students, the issue comes as no surprise. ‘I’ve known about this for four years,’ Ashland senior Wesley Davis, 17, told the newspaper. ‘Some of them have it for medical reasons, but others are just trying to get free weed and sell it, turn it around.’”
