State lawmakers have moved forward a measure to permit the use of certain medical cannabis preparations by authorized patients while on school grounds.

Members of the Assembly voted last week in favor of the legislation, Senate Bill 223. It now awaits a concurrence vote from the Senate, which approved a prior version of the measure in March by a vote of 29 to 4. Former Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar legislation last year.

If passed into law, the measure would permit parents to administer non-smoked formulations of cannabis to patients on school campuses. Several other states, such as DelawareIllinois, and Washington, already authorize similar activities.
