 HB 1060, a.k.a. Maddie & Ducky’s Law, will allow parents, guardians, or caregivers to administer oral cannabis to students at school, on a school bus, or at school-sponsored events.

Meagan Holt, whose daughter Maddie uses cannabis to treat her Zellweger syndrome said, “Maddie & Ducky’s Law would allow medically complex children, like Maddie, to safely access an education. Schools already have policies around safe use of other controlled substances. All we are asking is that cannabis be included in those policies because, for kids like Madeline, cannabis is a life-saving medication that she can not go without.”

Holt said she’s been humbled by the support the 3-page bill has garnered in Olympia and is optimistic about it passing this session.
