After a court case that had many citizens of the state questioning the common sense of the law, a judge has sided with the family of Brooke Adams and will allow her to bring cannabis oil to school for emergency treatment of a rare form of epilepsy.

The Rincon Valley Union School District in Santa Rosa, California, sought to ban the cannabis oil from school grounds because it contains active marijuana ingredients. They argued the use of the ointment on school grounds violated state and federal laws, and should thereby not be acceptable. 

The family of Adam’s however brought them to court when they saw that the cannabis oil was able to treat Brooke’s seizures and subdue them almost immediately, and deemed it necessary for her at school as well. A judge temporarily allowed Brooke to bring her medication to school while the case was ongoing, with a nurse alongside her to apply the oil three times a day. 

Medical marijuana in California is legal in private with a doctor's note in California, as well as recreational marijuana by adults.
