Defense in Atkinson marijuana case argues medical need

By Kiera Blessing kblessing@eagletribune.com Eagle-Tribune

PLAISTOW — An Atkinson couple charged in October with cultivating, possessing, and intending to distribute marijuana pleaded not guilty in Plaistow District Court

Monday, where their defense attorney argued the growing operation was never meant as a business, but as a means of relief for a man battling cancer. Robert and Valerie Zdrada, aged 65 and 60 respectively, were arrested Oct. 19 shortly before 9 a.m. after police seized more than 7 pounds of marijuana, along with seeds, plant stems and cultivation tools from their Crown Hill Road home.

The couple was given a hand summons to return to court in December and released.
In court, the couple's lawyer, Alan Cronheim, refuted the allegation that the Zdradas were running a criminal enterprise and implied that the marijuana was solely for Robert Zdrada's personal use, as he suffers from cancer.
                                                                                                                                                                                                "I think as more is known, the direction of this case is going to dramatically change," Cronheim told Judge Sharon N. DeVries. "We're anxious to get to the facts of the case but recognize today is not the day."                                                                                                                                                                                                

The prosecution told DeVries the couple is facing one charge each of intent to distribute because of the amount of marijuana found. When the statute allowing medical marijuana use in New Hampshire, passed in 2013, goes into effect, each patient and caregiver together may only posses 2 ounces at any given time. Even the distribution centers, once opened, will be allowed only a 5-pound back-stock and an additional 6 ounces per patient. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                The prosecution also noted that medical marijuana identification cards allow for possession only, while the Zdradas were illegally manufacturing their own cannabis.                                                                                                                                                                                                

Cronheim disputed the distribution charge, noting that police found no records, measures, scales or weapons — "nothing consistent with distribution." He added that Robert is "awaiting the state to finally implement the law passed three years ago" allowing for medical marijuana use. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                "This is a case about a man with cancer who is trying to survive," Cronheim said. The state is not distributing identification cards until the dispensaries open, Cronheim said, currently slated for the end of March.

Last month, an Alstead woman, Linda Horan, won her case in Merrimack Superior Court after she petitioned the state to issue her a license in New Hampshire so she could obtain medical cannabis in Maine. The court's ruling, however, ordered a license be issued for Horan only

The Zdradas were again released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail, with the condition that they continue living in their Crown Hill Road home and that Robert Zdrada follow his doctors' treatment recommendations.

"Obviously, it's not in my interest to see that you're following what your doctors said or not," DeVries told Zdrada. "I'm just saying if they recommended you use medical marijuana that you follow that as part of your bail order, so that protects you in that regard."  


Following the arraignment, Cronheim reiterated that "This is a medical case, not a criminal case.  

"It's my hope that they (the prosecutors) will understand the medical circumstances and a make a decision appropriate to those facts."

No sign of intent to distribute so why didn't they investigate further before they charged these people or is that too hard?

Question:: A plant can grow tall and bushy as I understand it but how many buds,wet or dried, does it take to make the legal weight? No one can tell how many buds a plant will produce or its quality when it is planted. There is the problem of natural, animal and human destruction to be considered. The amount of plants [eventually in the future] to be allowed by a grower for their own use has to be considered for their own limited and maximum use in growing the plants. Again,I say let these two people go upon sentencing in court. Reading between the lines of what the judge has said I think and feel he will do his best to do just that. JMHO

Anonymous said...

The judge is a woman.

The plants were already harvested so they know how much it weighed. Part of the issue is that they should not have been growing their own. The other part of the issue is that they couldn't get it from legal sources since the State has not fully instituted the approved program.

Shame on the State.

I was wrong because I wanted to say DO NOT cause hatred like a drunk. Not even close, I walked the walk and grew up with an alcoholic mother and suffered as well as my whole family. I have never seen such abuse from a parent that smoked a little weed in my life!

For now it is illegal to grow pot in your garden or else where. Growing it for personal use is far better than paying set prices to have the government take a part of the money to use for tax purposes. We all pay through the nose as it is to support the governments projects and the deals with business owners that provide profits and kick backs to those who give them the so called best bid offers even if the lowest bid was best to take. - Historical fact- After ww2 it was little known that marijuana grew along the ditches in wet areas along the railroad tracks as a normal happening from bird droppings and really never thought of because very few knew what it was. When it was finally found out what it was it was eliminated so it wouldn't be used. Wasn't it Gene Krupa the famous drummer of that era that was jailed for smoking pot?

This plant indeed provides relief from the debilitating effects of chemo
Growing it in a controlled environment organically eliminates having to
buy in from street dealers... And this generation of the many different
weed strains can be applied for specific treatments...

Finally research on this amazing plant has discovered many
uses for treatment of epilepsy in children, glaucoma, and even
Alzheimer's...

If faced with what Bob has to deal with, I'd do the same thing
Knowing some of the officers in town, I can't imagine they got
any satisfaction with this "bust".

They must have had nothing better to do, but some of them seem to get pleasure out of targeting nice people.

It makes sense that you'd want your weed to be organic and wholesome.

Maybe Bob didn't realize how much he had growing until it was cut. After all, we know he's no dealer.

In the late 80's PC found a few plants on east road growing behind some hedges. There was a robbery in the neighborhood and officers were searching for them when they came across the small handful of plants. The searched the guys home and found nothing. The plants when dried might have weighed a pound. He was arrested and convicted. He had to go to weekend jail for three months. I guess he wasn't one of the good old boys. The owner of that property figured it was the neighbors kids on the other side of the fence throwing their seeds there. I knew this guy and it wasn't his.

You expect us to believe they were investigating a robbery, and searching the area? They're not allowed to go in the woods. My guess is there was a confidential informer (no one) and they targeted the guy. If it was a serious conviction they wouldn't give him a pass to go to work.

An old wise man once told me "With dope there's hope, with booze you lose."

Anonymous said...

Above anonymous, The old man was more than right in what he said to you. Legal drugs are what he was supposed to be saying. If marijuana is finally legal as a drug to help in ailments or even if allowed in recreational use as well it will be most welcome in todays society. I say that because of the relief it will bring to the sick and will help to keep the recreational user in a better state of mind. We have to many "nuts" that will not use the meds they are given but will smoke marijuana as they would tobacco. It isn't as yet said what ill effects marijuana has as compared to tobacco. Granted we know more about tobacco than we do about marijuana but it does seem to be of benefit to the sick where tobacco is definitely not.Marijuana doesn't have to be smoked as does tobacco to be effective. Let those in opposition to marijuana get sick and then see what they will do for the relief of the pain ,etc. ,of their illness.Personally I'd rather be on marijuana than any other drug if I get to be that ill, wouldn't you?. JMHO

Lets get a few things clear if is voted on 95% of the votes will be from regular users to get high, just like most if not all the reasons that people drink alcohol is to get high. To relieve some pain alcohol does the same as pot but some can't tolerate either. If you think that these are gateway drugs think about Oxycontin and a lot of others. Making pot legal will help society in a number of ways, prohibition had almost the same impact as the war on drugs has. The money, life's and the ridiculousness jailing and killing of our young will be almost stopped. The cry that it will be easy to get, well it is pretty easy now and wouldn't it be great if we could regulate it like booze and make some tax money. Just think of the money we'd save in our legal and justice system. You could even save a lot of dough and grow your own. BTW These systems are the biggest road blocks out there, you don't want to take all those cushy jobs away now would you.

Back to the topic at hand. Why didn't the police investigate and get the facts then turn a blind eye to the problem? Isn't Atkinson known for selective law enforcement?

To say that a police department in the whole country doesn't know who are doing drugs would be a lie. Police officers in every town, city and village hamlet know who the drug users and dealers are. The dealers should be brought in one by one to be told they have been and are being watched and to close up shop over a given short time in order to have the junkies to get clean. Any one known dealer brought in once a month or so gives a junkie the chance to kick the habit on their own or in a hospital. That way the junkie has the opportunity to seek the help they need because they then know that their drug supply is becoming shorter and shorter to become high. They may become sick with with drawl symptoms in trying to come clean but that is better than dieing from an overdose . As for the dealer that doesn't heed the word and still sells drugs then throw them in prison when caught. That is being more than fair to the junkies and the dealer[s] that have been told to stop their known actions . When the word spreads that they are being watched closely the related criminal actions due to drugs will diminish and the costs of being behind bars will be far less than it is now. To most of you my opinion is very harsh but when you consider that drug deaths are becoming more than ever before happening and the crimes related to drug use are steadily rising what is it you are willing to do about it ? Try to remember that addiction to drugs are self imposed and not forced upon any one except for peer pressure by those who think they are your friend, they are not. I welcome your being critical of my own personal thoughts for what I've written here and look forward to your response[s] on how to stop this drug use problem we all have to endure.

Anonymous said...

Harsh? Hardly. To warn the junkies over and over as you suggest is nuts. Go get them right away. Go warn the cancer patient instead.

Anonymous said...

Don't get me wrong but I feel it is better to do as I suggested. My reason is thatit gives a fair chance to the junkie more than the dealer. It spreads the word that enough is just that- enough. We can no longer just stand by while our kids get involved with the hard drugs and die. the smaller of the dealers should be brought in and they will spread the word and the big dealers will continue on selling their death . They are the ones who should be under watch and arrested when it can be done. Don't get me wrong but the small dealer should be as well. You have to start some where and that is where it can start along with the users being warned of being watched . If we arrest every druggie our jails will be over flowing more than they are now. Can you afford to pay the costs related to jailing them,I can't . The junkie has to be treated or they can kick the addiction on their own. As for the dealers let them be caught with dealing the drug[s] after just one fair warning that will go around like wild fire when the first one is brought in to be told they are on notice. The junkies will spread the word as well . When they get desperate enough because of the lack of the drug they use they will kick on their own or they will get help to kick the habit in a controlled environment. --You say go get them right away..... How do you propose they do that? How stupid do you think the police are when they have to have a warrant, or arrest[s] after or by seeing a dealer or junkie doing their thing. The police can only do their job by observation and people telling them who is doing what drug wise. --- You have your opinion and I have mine but some where in between our opinions you have to realize that a quick way of saving lives and stopping drug related crimes because of doing drugs has to be done the quickest way possible. I feel and think my way is better than letting it go any further than it has to as it is being done now . Thanks for your response as I look forward to more and possibly by a police member willing to address the problem as I've written in my blogs.

The police have demonstrated their lack of objectivity and good judgement for decades. I don't trust them to make the right decisions about drug related arrests or any other arrests. After all, they get to embellish the facts and claim confidential sources. Bull shit.

Anonymous said...

When you say the police do you include all the other law enforcement agencies or just the local department? If what you say is true of one or all of law enforcement then why not just let the drug problem grow even bigger and let the crimes go on until it affects and effects you or a family member or friend. Time to get away from "Medication Lane" is it not?

Let's drop the PC crap and say what the problem really is. It not the dealer it's the user. Kids that use usually have a mental handicap in some way. Brought on by poor or non existing parenting, peer pressure, very poor teaching and the stresses our society puts on them. Are all kids that try or use drugs have mental problems? No but most that go on to use heroin and potentially commit suicide do. You see a lot of suicides by the young due to low esteem and confidence when life throws them a curve ball. Combining drugs with these issues just makes it 10 time worse. Taking the dealer out of the equation is not the answer, being a parent is sometimes and that should be were we start to get the problem under control. The "drug war" is nothing but a money maker for the establishment. Just think if we spent more of that money on teaching and preparing our children for the real world by parenting and the schools working together. We have created generations of depressed, insecure and unprepared children.

Anonymous said...

7:06, What do you mean by saying to drop the PC crap. He isn't the chief any more. The heroin problem has been going on even before he was in the police department. It has grown to what it is now for more reasons than what you have said here. It is not just by family failures and lack of teaching in schools and other places. You forget it is a self induced disease that ,for the most part, starts at and beyond the age of reasoning. One reason for the addiction should be obvious to you and it is the lack of speaking up to the places where it should be with the authorities that can do some thing about it. It starts with the police in our communities and in our churches as well. The other places I have said and agree with you can not do any thing unless we are ever watch full of our neighbors in order to be safe in our homes and communities . Our country is going slowly down the crapper because of all the worlds problems we are involved in. And yet we wont see off the tip of our noses that we can lose our country from within our own lawlessness when we allow the drug problem to continue. I could go on and on with many other things to add here but why should I bother when you and many others will not take a stand to the problems we have within our country when you all bury your heads in the sand thinking it will all go away over night as in a dream. I have read the above posts and ask that you really indulge and think deeply in doing the same while reading them,especially from 12/18 @ 9:39 on down . In one of them it asks what you would do to stop the drug problem . Well what will you do?

Anonymous said...

12/21 at 5:42 The police have allowed this so now you suggest we let it happen? Where's the logic in that? No one wants to see this continue do any do you even say this?

It's the drug dealers that need to go down hard.

Anonymous said...

Above, I can agree the drug dealers have to go down hard. How can you say the police have allowed this-- unless-- it, of course, was during the PC time. Was there really ever an arrest for drug dealing during that time. I can't recall one . If you re read what was written by 12/21@ 5:42 you will understand what that person was saying. They were saying that if you do nothing then you and law enforcement will let the problem continue to grow faster and bigger than what it is now.

The drug issues will never disappear. Make them legal is the thing to do. It is no different than tobacco, alcohol, prescription medications and everything else that distorts the brain to the point of addiction. The users of any of these are prayed upon on people that want to make a buck. It being illegal just makes it worse because you now get the "extra" low life being able to take advantage of these people and the system that has become so over bloated making money off the drug war. Too bad we don't want to see that the problem lies within our own controls. It is a mental issue starting usually at the parent level and then getting out of control so bad that it always points to the persons self esteem, confidence to maneuver in our world and sometimes just a bit though to relieve pain.

Anonymous said...

To the above, Not all people are the same. Some have mental issues and others have so called good judgement in what to do with their and the many of your own wants in other peoples lives. Making all hard drug use legal will only contribute to higher addictions.Those who get addicted to hard drugs have no real reasoning to make decisions in what they do. Usually they will or want to commit crimes of every kind to keep their selfish high on going with out thought to who they hurt or even kill to keep the high on going. There is a difference between using illegal drugs compared to tobacco,alcohol, and prescription medications. You ,it seems, would rather have someone close to you to become an addict . Well!! I hope that when they do you are the one to be first in line to be hurt or even killed by your want to allow them to be hard drug addicts. You can't be serious in your posting what you said above here. All you want is the responses to keep on for your selfish and mean way of posting. You have no regard for other people ,especially those who have been affected by the hard drug addict[s]. Where is your sense of decency when you promote illegal hard drug use by what you've post here. I had to answer your latest post today on a day of christian belief and of peace . Speaking of peace, I hope you enjoy the day knowing how cowardly and mean you are when you fail to recognize what you have posted above. When the closeness of you,your family, and friends ,if you really have any, are at stake in safe living due to your want to allow illegal hard drug use to be legal it will be on you not those who want the drug issue to stop . Will you be able to live with that? I think not, so rethink your way of thinking or at least try to by going for the mental help you obviously need.

It could an under lying reason to blame but not after you've grown to the age of reason and especially after as an adult. The disease is a SELF INDUCED DISEASE and it is the addicted junkies choice that they make. Stop coddling them and come to reality and face the facts that they made the choice of addiction not me or you or our parenting . I haven't seen or heard of a child before the age of reasoning becoming an addict by their own choice and I doubt that you have as well. For you to say I should be on the Billy Graham show is an insult to every one who has watched or been on the show. If I'm righteous then just what are you . You cant be righteous because you said that I am. Now really give serious and heavy thought before answering the question of your own description of your status. Remember you cant use righteousness to do so. I do not have to research to see the numbers you suggest because the numbers are increasing in alarming daily reports of drug related deaths and increasing numbers of users of illegal heavy drugs. The crime rates from addiction are at an all time high and yet you apparently do not care. I cant wait to see your reaction when a drug addiction related crime happens to you or some one close to you. That will change your way of thinking and attitudes of your present head in the sand thinking. The problem of drugs and addiction doesn't just disappear when you finally get your head out of the sand.You can only hold your breathe for just so long while your head is under the sand.-- WAKE UP, DUMMIE,WAKE UP AND BREATHE THE AIR OF THE REALITIES OF DRUGS WE ALL FACE TODAY.

Paging Dr. Kushman-- Paging Dr. Kushman There seems to be a critical need for your help with two potential patients that just arrived but not voluntarily. Ask for them by their anonymous posts at these following times 1. 12/25 @7:15 , 2.12/26@6:31 in the admitting area. A possible third has posted at 7:48 but I do believe it is one of the two already here awaiting your arrival.

". Well!! I hope that when they do you are the one to be first in line to be hurt or even killed by your want to allow them to be hard drug addicts."

Seriously? On Christmas? Clearly you are disconnected from the problem and the solution. Anger management help might benefit you even more than the English classes.

Yeah, you aren't on something (drugs, pedestal...)

1:32, No I'm not disconnected from the problem or solution. Do you actually and really think drugs and addict problems take a break on holidays such as this? Where is your own reality of the drug related problems or do they take breaks on holidays? I have no anger management problems but do admittedly have English writing needs. However ,I see you do know what I mean when I write in order for you to send back messages on this site to me. ------ 2:47, I see you posted what I already wrote above but you haven't given any thought to posting your agreeing or not to what I posted. Are you afraid of truths and facts or would you rather be hiding your head under the sand. You should know by now that I am not on any illegal drugs nor am I an addict or on some pedestal having written as I have . You say that I am because you have willingly failed to respond to what was posted as did 1:32 trying to cover your rear ends as possible druggies writing here.

You're on something. No one owes you an explanation in defense of your mindless acusations. You blindly accuse people without a factual basis. You have no clue who you are attacking here.

So your defense is that anyone here can verify your anonymous self are not a druggie? Well, then put your money where your mouth is and identify yourself, because without your name, you have nothing to defend.

No more doritos for you tonight. Get some sleep.

It would appear to even the most dumb of readers that I'm not a druggie by what I've written posting as I have on the subject. Now that I've defended myself in answering you why aren't you posting by name or do you have "nothing to defend" and want to remain anonymous because of retaliation by some nut case in town? 6:18, You,too, have no clue "who you're attacking here". At least I'm not afraid to say what I feel and think is a/the truth about the drug problem in our town and country. It is spreading like a wind blown forest fire is it not? If you agree with that then it is time to put the fire out isn't it? It takes a lot of people having to man the hoses, shovels and fire retardants to put the fires of drugs out. ------ Oh damn!! I forgot that you head in the sand critics are of the school of letting the other guy do it.

Are you biased towards any truth that any person speaks [writes] or are you the assumed Dr. Kushman mentioned above? If he is a true doctor then he knows the truths about drugs and mental illness and will tell you that I'm more the right than the wrong and a normal person than all who do have your heads in the sand. To be very truthful I'm having fun with you and the other head in sands people here for the most part,- however- , I am very concerned with the addicts and suppliers that are becoming more and more in numbers with each day that passes by. There is a well intended need to comprehend what can be done by doing what I've written on how to do it in earlier posts. Why allow a family or friend to get involved with the or some kind of alleged escape from -true reality- when you can do and try to stop this menace and related crimes by doing any thing at all to at least decrease drug issues? What I wrote about law enforcement doing what I suggested hasn't been openly addressed as yet and that bothers me . Any good officer with good intention in all the enforcement agencies can do it if they want to protect the public and ,yes!, their friends and families. But alas they have not been open to the public here with any comments. I do not know but then who knows , may be they are doing what was suggested quietly . My apologies to those who may have been some what or very pissed at what I've written but I am who I am and that being is some one wanting to do what they can about the drug issues.

Let me know when you awaken to the truth of the drug problem. If you are in law enforcement then all I can say is shame on you and the profession for not answering to any thing posted here about the drug problem as was suggested. If your not law enforcement then go away and disappear from the site as you only contribute to the drug problem we have today and ,yes, will have in the tomorrows to come.

Mark Acciard speaks the truth when he says he posts under his own name. I am the one posting anonymously about the drug problem[s]and will continue to do so because of what the spineless twits did to him. Time for me to go make some money to pay for what is what we all complain about. You know food, house hold expenses ,and the taxes we have to pay to live so "gloriously" in tax free NH where live free or die is just a brain washing excuse that is a misused lie.

Anonymous said...

So right you are. The reckless spending, fraud and downright thievery start at the Presidency and go all the way down to the dog catcher. People complain but refuse to stick their necks out to actually do something. Mark on the lower scale of things, but as important, has stuck his neck out on a number of times to try and quell the abuses at our town level. It's like a giant bubble with all of the "workers" money being taken and the bubble just keeps growing. I don't know how it will be when one of two things will happen, it bursts or just deflates due to lack of having drained the pockets of the working to give to the moochers and power hungry thief's.
NH has been getting right up there getting inline with the States that steal more from the workers to give to progressive agendas. At one time we were more true to our motto of live free or die, now it is just meaningless words.
Again I thank Mark and would love to post my name but because of certain affiliations and commitments I can not at this time.

Anonymous said...

It was General Starks "Live free or die" speach to his men in his address to those gathered there at the time . How it got so way out of its meaning of its content and taken out of context had to be from the politians after that was said by him. With its misuse in original meaning I'd have to say we all would like to "Live free or die" . The only way to do that starts at the ballot box and being ever watchful of the pols to stop and keep corruption to its barest of size. - Careful on the roads today we need your contributions of tax monies to run our governments.

Thank you to those of you who continue to agree with me here, it is appreciated. It is a sad fact in this town that people must comment anonymously for fear of retribution from the corrupt leadership in town. The fact that people feel the need to trod this path, is, in itself, proof of the problems in town, yet so few will stand up and address them. And when they do it is one or two at a time, and it is easy for PHil, Jack, BIlly, et.al. to demonize them individually without addressing the issues brought up.

One of us has appeared to be misunderstanding of the others post. [I do not think it me!] I asked you to answer the question and you did at 9:05,thank you . I am against the Conman and his bullies and it seems you think I'm in favor of him . If being in hopes as I am of seeing him and his cronies go down makes me a bully then I have to be one just as much as you are as to being a bully knowing you also want a change in Atkinson town politics and a change of officials faces. -- You only have yourself to blame in managing your life and I can't control how you do it verbally or otherwise especially by demand[s].

Wanting to see the end of corruption doesn't make me a bully. Are you on something? Your demanding of others to reveal their identity here while you seem to think you are somehow exempt from your own demands is laughable and sad at once.

Anonymous said...

You said I was a bully then we found that we both are not supporters of the corrupt in town. Then I said that if we are the same then you must be as much of a bully as you claimed I am . Equal of/in being bullies if any thing at all aren't we? I do not make demands of any person . I do suggest things in topics that concern us . There are no demands in that so wake up and read things as they were intended to be read. Yes!!equally we want to see the end of corruption even if are tagged as bullies. Now how sad and laughable is that? [I'd ask what your on but I'm sure you'd wouldn't answer truthfully.] JMHO
