The California Assembly on Monday passed the bill that would enable school boards to decide whether parents can give their kids medical marijuana in nonsmoking form on campus, according to The Associated Press.

Currently, medical marijuana is not allowed on campus, so children who use it to treat seizures have to take it off campus, the wire service reported.

The AP noted that people who support the bill argue this requirement is dangerous and burdensome, while opponents are concerned about permitting the substance on campus.
