Cancer patient's lawyer says she can get marijuana in Maine

CONCORD (AP) — The lawyer for a New Hampshire woman with late-stage lung cancer says she could get medical marijuana in Maine if New Hampshire health officials issue her an identification card saying she's eligible.
Linda Horan of Alstead wants a judge to order the state to issue her a medical marijuana ID card before dispensaries open in New Hampshire next year. Lawyers for the state argue that would undermine New Hampshire's need to control distribution at its alternative treatment centers.
Horan said after a hearing last week that she may be dead before in-state dispensaries open.
Her lawyer filed affidavits Thursday from Maine dispensary operators saying Horan could get marijuana there with a New Hampshire ID card.
Lawyers for the state didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
