Since medical marijuana was legalized in Florida the Sunshine State is making changes.
The Florida Department of Education sent out a memo in October saying that all school districts must have a medical marijuana policy in place by 2020.
First Coast News reached out to Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns counties school districts. Currently, Clay County is the only school district with an active policy, which went into effect in 2018.
Clay counties' policy can be found in Section 4.12 of their health and safety policy. It allows a parent or guardian to bring certain forms of medical marijuana and administer it without disrupting school activity.
According to their policy, a child needs a state medical marijuana card. The parent would take the rest of the medicine home after the child takes their medication.
"I think it's wonderful" Rachel Conrey said.
Conrey is the manager at Natural Life off of Kernan Boulevard. She says the policy could help children around the state.
"My dad’s girlfriend’s son has autism… and from personal experience, I've seen [CBD] make a difference in activity in school, friends, overall education, how well he's doing, and I think it's really great," She said.
All school districts have to comply with the new regulations by the end of this year.
Duval County School Board staff say they are operating under their existing procedures for other prescription drugs, but they are working on a policy specifically for medical marijuana.
St. Johns County Schools say they are working with their school board attorney to develop a policy.
Nassau County has not yet responded with a comment.
