AUBURN — A Maine school committee is scheduled to consider a policy that would allow students to have medical marijuana administered in school under certain conditions.

The committee approved a draft medical policy last month. It’s scheduled to give it a final vote on Wednesday.

Auburn Assistant Superintendent Michelle McClellan says any medical marijuana would have to be approved by a physician, and administered in school by a parent or guardian. Nurses wouldn’t be able to administer the drug.

Marijuana doses would have to be in non-smoking form.

Superintendent Katy Grondin says a new state law requires all schools to adopt a medical marijuana policy. This policy would only apply to students under the age of 18.
