I’m asking all parents that read this blog to help me promote awareness in this life or death situation This is for all children that depend on cannabis daily to treat a disease or disability during school hours .This is one man’s wish that we as parents should make sure is fulfilled . Lobbyist Mike Robinson fought for not only his son and daughter but for all kids to have the right to use cannabis oil while at school by creating “The Peron Resolution” which started out being Genevieve’s Law and was changed to honor Dennis Peron
Prop 215 for those under age 21 and allows Medicinal Cannabis to be used in schools private and public and centers for a development disabled centers. Awesome right ?? WRONG! I always say if it’s not broke the someone of authority will break it and that’s exactly what happened when they created Prop.64 . November 8, 2016 California joined multiple other states with Proposition 64 allowing for the use of recreational marijuana. Awesome right ? WRONG ! At least not for the kids who need cannabis at school . Proposition 215 is no longer capable of gaining their natural and medical compassionate use of oils at any place where someone is working. All because of section 11362.45(f) makes the need for a joint resolution stating the need for creation of regulation beyond a necessity. “The rights and obligations of public and private employers to maintain a drug and alcohol free workplace or require an employer to permit or accommodate the use, consumption, possession, transfer, display, transportation, sale or growth of marijuana in the workplace, or affect the ability of employers to have policies prohibiting the use of marijuana by employees and prospective employees, or prevent employers from complying with state or federal law.” (11362.45 f) . So now I ask the States, what are you going to do to fix this loophole that is only hurting innocent children that can not speak for themselves ? Children that depend on cannabis to keep them from seizing and becoming ill school?
I call Discrimination ! Schools are allowed to distribute narcotics to children with a prescription for things like A.D.D but they can’t distribute oil from a natural plant to keep them from having a seizure that could literally kill them ? That is for the children already attending school, the Children just reaching school age will not be permitted to attend school like Megan Holt’s daughter Maddie. They are keeping your children from an education but most importantly they are denying them the right to feel like a normal kid that just wants to go to school and learn and play with other kids.
This is why we must fight for exclusions when the laws don’t acknowledge the rights for special needs patient’s. We have to make sure these kids are treated fairly. No child should be denied the right to use a natural healing plant if it improves their health or quality of life no matter where they are at. If the teachers can’t administer it fine, let Mom come in and take her child to a private area for 2 minutes . It shows when they laid out prop 64 they were only thinking about one thing and we all know what that was. Money ! Obviously no one creating prop 64 was thinking “Let’s make sure we protect the rights of all school age Children who need cannabis ” Mike Robinson felt it was his responsibility to step up , being a cannabis Patient himself and having a daughter with severe epilepsy, “Steve Kubby, the lobbyist behind Prop 215, was initially who Mike went to with the Resolution last year. He had a stroke and was no longer lobbying, since He registered back in Feb of 97. In California it was decided it was Mike’s turn to take the wheel” He found out Dennis Peron had fallen ill and what was going to be “Genevieve’s law” turned into the ‘Peron Resolution'”
Mike Robinson hand delivered the Peron Resolution all the way to the Capital to Senator McGuire . It is currently awaiting a bill numer. Bottem line is these are children it doesn’t matter who’s children ,their age ,race or illness. It shouldn’t matter what the law states, when it comes to our children it should be what’s best for them, don’t be afraid to speak up! It is your right as a parent. We have to fight for those who can not fight for themselves the way Mike has been doing for years . Remember it takes more than 1 voice or 1 man ,every breathing human being should show support for the health and welfare of a child!
