The report goes on to say

Horan, 64, suffered from stage-four cancer in her lungs, brain and lymph nodes when she sued the state in November. Her lawyers argued there was nothing in the law to prevent officials from issuing her a medical marijuana ID card and using that in neighboring Maine to purchase medical marijuana.

A Merrimack County Superior Court judge ruled in her favor, and Horan first purchased medical marijuana on Dec. 18.

“She was a tenacious advocate for the people. She cared about people; she cared about social justice,” said Glenn Brackett, president of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO. Brackett said he found out about her death Monday.

“Nothing stopped her activism — even facing death she found a way to make her dying a vehicle for change,” wrote radio commentator Arnie Arnesen on her Facebook page.
