PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A cancer patient in New Hampshire who took her home state to court to get a medical marijuana card got her medicine in Maine on Friday.
New Hampshire approved use of marijuana by people suffering from certain conditions more than two years ago, but the first dispensaries aren’t open yet. Linda Horan, who has late-stage terminal lung cancer, successfully argued in court that she might not live long enough to see them open.
A judge had ruled last month she could seek to buy in Maine.
Horan, a retired telephone worker and labor activist from Alstead, received her prescription in the form of cookies, crackers, tinctures and capsules as well as marijuana to smoke. She said Friday that her victory in court will improve the quality of her final months of life.
“I would have been looking at an ending that including nothing but Big Pharma and opiates,” Horan said. “I’m over the moon.”
Wellness Connection of Maine co-founder Becky DeKeuster said it was a “great honor” to serve Horan. Horan received her marijuana at Wellness Connection’s Portland location.
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, New Hampshire Public Radio reported. NHPR reports the state health department has received about 70 applications.
