AUBURN, Maine (AP) - A Maine school committee has approved the first reading of a policy that would allow students to have medical marijuana administered in school under certain conditions.

Auburn Assistant Superintendent Michelle McClellan tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/1Ob43Fr ) any medical marijuana would have to be approved by a physician, and administered in school by a parent or guardian. Nurses wouldn’t be able to administer the drug.

Marijuana doses would have to be in non-smoking form.

Superintendent Katy Grondin says a new state law requires all schools to adopt a medical marijuana policy. This policy would only apply to students under the age of 18.

The committee is scheduled to give the policy a second reading, or final vote, Jan. 6.
