Suspect Claims He Smoked Marijuana To Combat Migraines
    #416465 - 05/12/10 04:52 PM (6 years, 5 months ago)

4-Year-Old Taken Into Custody

Police weren’t sympathetic when a Gloucester man allegedly told them he was smoking marijuana in the presence of his 4-year-old son because he suffered from migraines.

Albert Derian, 46, was arrested about 5:45 p.m.  Saturday outside Canobie Lake Park in Salem, N.H., after a security guard spotted him sitting in his car.

Security guards became especially suspicious because Derian was holding both hands up to his face while smoking, Salem police Capt.  Shawn Patten said.

Derian’s son was seated in the front passenger’s seat and jumped around inside the car while his father smoked, Patten said.  One guard suspected Derian was smoking marijuana and called a police officer.

When the officer asked Derian why he was smoking the drug in front of his son, Derian told the officer he smoked because he suffers from migraine headaches and that the boy would be OK because the car’s windows were down, police said.

Police said a film container full of marijuana was found.  Derian was charged with possession of a controlled drug and endangering the welfare of a child.

Derian’s 4-year-old son was taken to the police station and later released to his mother.  Derian was issued a court summons and freed after being booked.

Last week, the New Hampshire Senate passed a bill, 14-10, to legalize medical marijuana for people suffering crippling ailments.  The bill allows people with a chronic or serious disease to keep up to six plants and a maximum of 2 ounces of marijuana in their possession.

But Patten said even if the legislation is passed into law, it’s unlikely it would affect a case similar to Derian’s.

“It’s still illegal in the state of New Hampshire and if it does pass, I am pretty sure the legislation will specify who can have it, for what reason, and when they can use it,” Patten said.  “Furthermore, I’m sure the usage is not going to be condoned in front of children, especially in front of children at an amusement park.”
