Rockwood School District employee says CBD oil caused her to fail drug test, lose job
In a letter from the school district to Jeffries, it said she is being placed on unpaid leave. Jeffries said she purchased the “Pure Kana” CBD online.
Her doctor, who recommended she take CBD oil said in a letter, “in order to avoid overly toxic prescription medications I often recommend trying CBD oils as an alternative therapeutic measure.” In the letter to the district, he also warned, “because CBD oil is unregulated, it can sometimes contain enough THC to result in a positive drug screen.”
Fox 2/News 11 reached out to the school district for answers. It issued this statement:
“Lorraine Jeffries resigned from Rockwood School District. She was hired by Rockwood on June 1, 2016.
As a public school district, we are not able to comment on personnel issues. It’s important to note that during any investigation it is our Rockwood standard practice to not allow individuals on our school district campuses.” – Dr. Eric Knost, Rockwood Superintendent”
Jeffries had been with the district for several years but said she had been a school bus monitor for more than a decade.
