A California judge has ruled that a 5-year-old girl from Santa Rosa can take cannabis oil while at her public kindergarten. The law in her municipality banned medical marijuana on school grounds and on her school bus, but now, Brooke Adams, who suffers from a form of epilepsy which causes her to have seizures several times a day, can get the life-changing medicine she needs when she needs it.

he Press Democrat says that Judge Charles Marson ruled that kindergartener Brooke Adams can continue attending Village Elementary School in Santa Rosa with is what he calls “emergency medicine.” This ruling by Marson goes against the order from the Rincon Valley Union School District, which claimed that allowing THC oil on school property violated state and federal laws.

Brooke’s mother, Jana Adams, burst into tears when she got the good news this week.

“I was so overwhelmed with emotion and joy that we don’t have to fight anymore after a battle of over two years. I’m grateful that we had this ruling so she can just go to school like any other child and we don’t have to keep pushing to get what she needs.”
