I have a doctor's recommendation for marijuana . I am also a student at a private university in California , which " as a recipient of federal funds , is subject to the Drug - Free Schools and Campuses Act ( 20 U . S . C . § 1011i and 34 CFR Part 86 ) and the Drug - Free Workplace Act ( 41 U . S . C . § 702 ) , is required " to certify to the Department of Education that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the abuse of alcohol and the illicit use of drugs by students and employees . " I've attended this school for 3 years , am in good academic , have won 3 academic awards , & am in my final semester ; I've had the recommendation before enrolling ; and until now , I've never needed a " disability accommodation . " Would my school probably accept the recommendation , or refuse my request for accommodation ?The reason I am now requesting a disability accommodation is this: One teacher dislikes that I appear drowsy, & send in email that he will mark me absent for appearing drowsy. After 3 absences, I risk being academically withdrawn from the class. My "disabillity accommodation" is only that this teacher not mark me absent for appearing drowsy. The school's administration has told me that it will grant my disability acommodation, but the teacher is furious at being "overruled" & so wants to see proof. Given the federal government's position on medical marijuana, yet my private school's location in California, how would the administration react to the reason for my drowsy appearance is from marijuana recommended by a doctor? Would the administration treat it as medicine, or as illicit (i.e. illegal) drug use, which is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct?
