HANOVER PARK, IL (WGN/CNN) - An 11-year-old girl who is suffering from leukemia can now use medicinal marijuana at her elementary school.

A federal judge gave the ruling Friday after the girl's parents sued their daughter's school district.

Ashley Surin was diagnosed with leukemia in December of 2008.

Her parents say there were side-effects to the chemotherapy and other medical treatments that brought on seizures.

"We administered chemotherapy to her for days, weeks, months," said Jim Surin, Ashley Surin's  father.

Surin has been using a medical marijuana foot patch and rubbing oil with positive results.

"Her brain used to be like in a cloud, and now she can think clearer and she's more alert," said Maureen Surin, the girl's mother.

The family asked the school district to store the medical marijuana on school grounds at Hanover Highlands Elementary in case it was necessary during the school day.

But the district denied the fifth grader's request because state law prohibits even medical marijuana on school grounds or school buses.

"This is a case of great importance,” said family attorney Steven Glink. "They are not going to enforce the ordinance.They're not going to take any action against the parents or the child."

The Illinois Attorney General agreed not to prosecute, and the school district said its goal was to have Surin back in the classroom with no legal consequences for staff who administer the medicine.

"Fix the law that's antiquated. It hasn't caught up with reality," Maureen Surin said.

Ashley Surin had been out of school for about two weeks as this legal drama unfolded.

Her father said she is excited to go back to school on Tuesday.

This is temporarily good news for the Surin family. However, the headline is incomplete:

11-year-old girl allowed to use medical marijuana at school
The correct headline is the one used by the Chicago Tribune when they furnished more complete details:
11-year-old girl allowed to use medical marijuana at school – for now
Furthermore, the article posted here is intentionally biased because information that was readily available in the ruling by U.S. Judge John Robert Blakey was intentionally omitted and therefore triess to lead to the false conclusion this is a permanent fix when it definitely is not.

The action by U.S. Judge John Robert Blakey is only temporary as Judge Blakey pointed out that officials would have to address the state law prohibition on possession or use of marijuana at school. For the judge to rule on the issue, he said, he would also need to find some legal basis to do so. The court case was continued until Friday, Jan. 19.

And Gatlin will cheer the suffering of this brave little girl if permission for her to use the medicine is revoked.

No, I am happy if it helps the girl.

My sole purpose here is to point out that you are a devious lying Paultard asshole and INTENTIONALLY posted a misleading article which omitted known facts.

My mission here has been accomplished and I will close by saying that:

Both the article you posted and the Chicago Tribune article were immediately and readily available on Google for you to select from to post. Yet you picked the yellow journalism article that was written to make it APPEAR this was a permanent order setting precedent. You have no creditability and join with hondope to rank as the two biggest liars on LF. You really need to stop posting yellow journalism articles ....

Piss off - this was from a MSM source which you hold in the highest esteem.

Oh - and piss off again.

There goes Gatlin again - arrogantly making himself the sole arbiter of what may be posted here.

Yet you picked the yellow journalism article...

Can't stand having your ass handed to you (again) can you liar?

Your claims of "yellow journalism" have been proven by me (once again) to be utter bullshit.

Interesting that you chose the image of a child to represent your maturity - that picture says it all.
