And that’s illegal. She was in an airport.

Do you think it’s a good idea to break laws in developing countries who hate America and the west?

Well you clearly haven’t traveled much or watched the news. A guy from America who went to North Korea was tortured to death for trying to steal a banner. All he had to do was follow the rules.

What is there to debate here??? She was caught with vape cartridges containing THC. Everyone knows the law and how Russia treats that. If not, maybe she should have asked someone if that was a good idea 1st.



Some people say it could be fabricated... I suppose that's true, since USA police have been caught all the time planting drugs in order to make an arrest. I would be surprised if that kind of stuff didn't happen in Russia from time to time. So why bother sending our athletes there if this is a concern??? I would guess because everyone connected with the story probably figures she is guilty and she did it to herself.

There's no angle for helping her because we can't say to the Russian legal system that it is not significant.

But if there were some major event, or diplomacy with the U.S., benefiting Russia, then I think VP would get a special decree and have her released. VP does have athletic interests.

Generally people have a short attention span. They’re on to the next big story.

Do people think she should be given special treatment because she’s a celebrity?

And if any of her supporters think we should be trading her for a serious killer/criminal, they're as crazy as Biden is not all there.
If the charges are true she's a complete moron.

But there is no reason to think they're definitely true.

Well, I think she had CBD or intended to only have CBD.

In Russia, all cannabis products are illegal. The law is not vague or difficult to understand at all. Some people just choose not to follow them, or they pick and choose which ones they will follow at potentially their own peril.


It wasn't that long ago that the US DEA was busting hemp farmers. I'm glad the laws have changed, but much of the world has not followed our lead on relaxing cannabis laws.

Tom Brady would be front page news. In her case it's barely a footnote because, well, few people actually care.

Not only that, but a black lesbian celebrity. All hail!

Before this incident, most people never heard of her. Most people know who Tom Brady is. That’s the difference. Do you ever hear about the hundreds if not thousands of people that are arrested abroad every year? No one knows who they are so people could care less. If she broke the law, she’ll have to deal with it like any other person facing charges.
