   DAYTON, Wash. (AP) -- 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 reports 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 say the claim was rejected because there's no fair market value for an illegal drug.
