NH cancer patient who sued to get medical marijuana Friday in Maine

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — An Alstead, N.H. cancer patient who took the state of New Hampshire to court to get a medical marijuana card is going to Maine to pick up her medicine.

The N.H. legislature approved the use of marijuana by people suffering from certain conditions more than two years ago, but the first dispensaries aren't open yet. Linda Horan argued in court that she might not live long enough to see them open.

Wellness Connection of Maine co-founder Becky DeKeuster says it will be a "great honor" to serve Horan on Friday in Portland.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports the New Hampshire Attorney General is advising the state's Department of Health and Human Services to start issuing medical marijuana ID cards to eligible patients. NHPR reports the state health department has received about 70 applications.
