HENRYETTA, Okla. — The Henryetta School Board approved a policy Monday that outlines the parameters of medical marijuana usage for students and employees on school grounds, according to The Henryettan.

The policy will take effect this school year, according to the school board agenda.

The online newspaper said employees will not be able to use medical marijuana or have it on them while working or during school hours, but if they have a medical marijuana license, they will not be subject to any disciplinary actions.

For students, The Henryettan reported, they can use medical marijuana for medical purposes and have access to it during school hours.

School employees will not be able to administer to students, The Henryettan stated, but a caregiver, with a medical marijuana license, can administer it at a private location while at school.

The papers said school employees can't store, take or use student's medical marijuana, or act as a caregiver to a student.
