The parents of a five year old girl with Dravet Syndrome, a form of epilepsy in children, have been in a battle with their daughters school about how she is being treated. 

Brooke Adams uses daily doses of cannabis oil that contains THC and CBD to treat her epilepsy. Brooke must carry the THC oil with her at all times, as it is administered through her gums to stop the seizures when they occur. 

Her school, Village Elementary in Santa Rosa California, says that because of a federal ban on the product, and state bans on medical cannabis in schools, she is not allowed to bring it on school property. 

The Adams family has brought it to the courts, and the California Office of Administrative Hearings’ Special Education Division, which handles disputes between schools and parents with disabled children is expected to issue a ruling by mid November. 

In the mean time, Charles Mason, the judge in the case, has granted Brooke a temporary order allowing her to attend kindergarten with her THC medication. The school must also provide a nurse to administer the medication to Brooke when she suffers a seizure.
