No insurance for pot plants stolen in Clarkston

DAYTON -- A Clarkston woman whose medical marijuana was stolen can't recover the loss under her renter's insurance policy because no legal value for the drug can be established.
The Lewiston Tribune reported that a judge in Dayton dismissed claims Tuesday against the insurance company that were brought by Thomas and Deborah McDonald. She has a Washington medical marijuana card for treatment of her brain cancer.
Ten plants were stolen from their home last spring. The couple filed a claim under a section of their insurance that covers trees, shrubs and lawn.
Court documents said the claim was rejected because there's no fair market value for an illegal drug.
