Gwinnett County Board of Education approves changes to Student Conduct Behavior Code to clarify position regarding cannabis

At its August 15, 2019, regular meeting, the Gwinnett County Board of Education approved a change to its student discipline code in an effort to clarify the district’s policy regarding the possession and/or sale of cannabis in Gwinnett County public schools in light of the passage of the Georgia Hemp Farming Act, which was signed into law on May 10. The new changes specifically identify cannabis as a prohibited substance in Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS).
