    Pot smell ends prom for Brighton teen - The Denver Post

    Does the girl have a case? The boyfriend had a prescription for marijuana.

    Jillian is a lawyer.

    But I'd say she doesn't have a case. No one forced her to attend this function. She did it of her own free will and accord. If she didn't make it inside... tough. The was no guarantees.

    Denial of entry into a semi-public affair (which is what a school dance is, open to the public who are eligible as students) IS a violation of her rights.

    She should sue and I hope to hell she wins big time.

    At least in my state, there is actually no prescription for marijuana, but a letter from the physician stating that marijuana is recommended. The amount of marijuana that can be used by the patient is limited, and it is to be consumed in the patients home.

    Clearly, they are not allowed to share the marijuana with others.

    And this letter helps the patient avoid prosecution and arrest. It is not a free ticket into a prom. The school can do anything that they want.

    So if she showed up smelling of alcohol she should be allowed in?

    Or say she is 18 and her BF is 21. And he is drunk.

    In? No?

    A school dance in a public school is not a public affair. The school as the authority to deny entrance as admission to the dance is not a right and is not an educational event.
