11-year-old girl allowed to use medical marijuana at school

KFVS 12 News

HANOVER PARK, IL (WGN/CNN) – An 11-year-old girl who is suffering from leukemia can now use medicinal marijuana at her elementary school.

A federal judge gave the ruling Friday after the girl’s parents sued their daughter’s school district.

Ashley Surin was diagnosed with leukemia in December of 2008.  

Her parents say there were side-effects to the chemotherapy and other medical treatments that brought on seizures.

“We administered chemotherapy to her for days, weeks, months,” said Jim Surin, Ashley Surin’s  father.

Surin has been using a medical marijuana foot patch and rubbing oil with positive results.

“Her brain used to be like in a cloud, and now she can think clearer and she’s more alert,” said Maureen Surin, the girl’s mother.

The family asked the school district to store the medical marijuana on school grounds at Hanover Highlands Elementary in case it was necessary during the school day.

But the district denied the fifth grader’s request because state law prohibits even medical marijuana on school grounds or school buses.

“This is a case of great importance,” said family attorney Steven Glink. “They are not going to enforce the ordinance.They’re not going to take any action against the parents or the child.”

The Illinois Attorney General agreed not to prosecute, and the school district said its goal was to have Surin back in the classroom with no legal consequences for staff who administer the medicine.

“Fix the law that’s antiquated. It hasn’t caught up with reality,” Maureen Surin said.

Ashley Surin had been out of school for about two weeks as this legal drama unfolded.

Her father said she is excited to go back to school on Tuesday.

    Thanks, joos, for being so benevolent and magnanimous in carrying the torch for our “free-dumbs”.

    Now tell US why the rate is so high and has skyrocketed and why you and your pharma companies continue to suppress how marijuana can also beat your assault for profit on humanity?

      Was at the pharma today…some dude requested a vaccine.

      Mentioned something to the employee guy to the effect of have got to get that yearly dose of mercury, aluminum and other unknown things.

      • Martist says:

        Did dude even know what you were talking about? I wonder. ..side note here, Dr Cianfrani from Perkiomenville,PA that committed suicide was listed as an “antivaccer” was not an antivaccer. He was definitely provaccinaton. My bro-in-law presented him with mercury level cdc paperwork after he tried to vacc his son. He still defendedhis stance on pushing vaccination and kept changing his reasoning as to why it was safe.

    For God’s sake the poor girl has leukemia. Why make her go to school in the first place?

  3. Bob in Wisconsin says:

    Above all else, this poor girl’s education (indoctrination) cannot be interrupted for any reason including illness of any kind. Imagine what would happen if significant numbers start removing themselves from the programming? Why, we just might have a major epidemic of clear headed thinkers to deal with…

    Time to all “come out” and stop the Rockefeller Drug Trust monopoly that’s killing all of us. Maybe sue in district to reclassify weed to schedule II or either produce medical benefits from 45+ yr study at Ole Miss.

    Her parents had the nerve to find a homeopathic non-lethal cost effective alternative to the addictive possibly lethal Big Pharma lab created synthetic heroin.

    Lukiemia is blood cancer, let her do what ever the hell she wants.
