KUSA - Medical marijuana and the passage of Amendment 64 has some schools dealing with more problems.
Two Douglas County principals say medical marijuana is in the schools, and it's getting kids suspended.
The problem starts with parents agreeing to a medical marijuana card for someone under 18.
Tony Kapas is the principal at Douglas County High School. He says some students believe since Amendment 64 passed, pot is OK in school.
It's the same story at DC Oaks, another high school in Douglas County where Mark Morgan is the principal.
The possession or use of marijuana, whether for medical use or not, is not allowed on school grounds and will get a student suspended.
People under 18 can get medical marijuana cards if a parent and two doctors sign off on it, but they can't take it to school.
School officials say some kids with those cards will bring pot into school and sell it.
Morgan says he has had parents bring kids into his office so they can hear from someone other than Mom or Dad that Amendment 64 doesn't provide sweeping permission to smoke pot without a consequence.
