so she was sentenced to 9 years for having 0.7 grams of hashish oil in luggage

or "She went in there loaded up with drugs into a hostile territory where they’re very vigilant about drugs. They don’t like drugs, and she got caught"
(as a Russian loyalist & always informed former 'president' put it)

Shit could be worse. Griner should consider herself lucky that she got caught in Russia and not in the Philippines where they will shoot and kill you on the spot if you are in the possession of drugs.

Don't bring drugs into Russia. Better yet. Don't go to Russia. Shitty for her but she put herself in this situation. Russia isn't like the United States where we show mercy. She got spoiled by western attitude towards lawmakers and didn't realize in shitty parts of the world they do not fuck around. Also biden will truly be a shitty president if he trades that arms dealer for an wnba player.

Yeah, I wouldn't try to smuggle shit into totalitarian shitholes with notoriously bad prisons.

Because of her stupid decision we are now releasing a dangerous arms dealer...

Its one thing to get high, it's another to smuggle drugs into foriegn countries.

Both the possession and smuggling are crimes we lock people up for here in the US! But we mad when someone else does it?

How fucked up is it that we have ppl in jail for smuggling weed right now, but because she plays well with identitt polotics and is half famous, sort of, she gets a pass and is responsible for releasing a dangerous criminal.

supposedly in Russia "Possession of up to 6 grams (or two grams of hashish) is an administrative offense, punishable by a fine or detention of 15 days"

so 9 years seems a bit much
their legal system may just be corrupt...

(& obviously she was NOT "loaded up with drugs" as fuckhead mcgee claimed, maintaining his 100% record in misrepresenting everything)

These examples seems a bit harsh. But maybe the legal system is corrupt in America too:

Life without Parole for Stealing a $159 Jacket

Scientists Sentenced to Six years in Prison for Failing to Predict an Earthquake

25-Years to Life for Approximately $15 Worth of Methamphetamine

"Scientists Sentenced to Six years in Prison for Failing to Predict an Earthquake"

That was in Italy.

TW, Smuggling probably makes ot worse.

If you bring drugs from Mexico its worse than simple possession for example.

Yes, it still seems absurd, but* Russia is an absurd country, she should have known that.

Maybe someone can confirm, Id heard this was her 2nd time, the first time being another country.

How long until diaper-shitter trades an arms dealer for him*? While still not descheduling pot/pardoning offenders
