WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors are seeking more information before deciding whether to charge a medical marijuana advocate who lost custody of her 11-year-old son following comments the boy made in a drug education program at a Kansas school.

Finney County Attorney Susan Richmeier said Wednesday she has asked Garden City police for follow-up reports in the case of 37-year-old Shona Banda. Those are expected to be completed within 10 days.

Banda referred any comment to her attorney, who did not immediately return a message.

Authorities were called to the boy’s school on March 24. A search of their house found marijuana and other drug-related items.

Police referred the case on Monday to the county attorney, saying possible charges include possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.
