APR 12th: Federal sentencing for Sonoma County patient/caregiver in San Francisco
Before his arrest in September 2002, Robert Schmidt was providing medical cannabis
for 1,200 qualified California patients and had developed his own strains of
cannabis to combat specific ailments. Arrested in a pre-dawn raid at his home in
Sebastapol and charged with "manufacture" of more than 1,000 plants, he faced a
mandatory 10-year sentence with the possibility of life in prison. Advised that he'd
be unable to present a defense at trial, he pled guilty to a lesser charge with no
mandatory minimum. Mr. Schmidt has a recommendation to use cannabis for wasting
syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder and sleep disorders. The hearing is
scheduled for Thursday, April 12th at 2:15pm before the Hon. Judge Charles Breyer in
U.S. District Court, 450 Golden Gate, San Francisco.
