If I have a prescription for marijuana, will this affect my custody case? I do not smoke in front of my child or have it around my child.
Probably not, as long as you can A) prove the prescription is legitimate; B) that you use as prescribed; C) that prescribed usage does not impair your ability to function as a fit parent; and D) that you keep your marijuana secured from access by the children.
As you may know, a lot of people get marijuana cards who don’t really have a legitimate medical need for marijuana use, so you’d need to overcome any (frankly reasonable) skepticism and prove your medical marijuana use is not to disqualifying factor in determining your parental fitness when the court makes its child custody and parent-time awards.
