DHS Child Protective Services workers treat the appropriate use of medical marijuana the same as any other prescription drug. The basic issue is: Can the adult provide for the safety and well-being of the child? DHS will assess how the drug use affects the parent or caregiver's ability to make sound judgments regarding the safety of the child—and what behaviors resulting from the parent's or caregiver's drug use may present a safety threat to a child and impact their ability to provide protection. Where and how does the person use medical marijuana? What is their plan to ensure a child would not have access to the drug or be exposed to second hand smoke? Does the patient's physician have concerns about the ability to provide safety and well being for the child?
