It is the other way around. Russia wants us to trade her for an old Russian weapons dealer we have in prison. But it is not likely the US government will actually make the trade. The prisoner we have is "worth more" (as fucked up as that sounds) than a WNBA basketball player. If it was Lebron James, maybe. But I don't see the US government agreeing to the current trade. We may still do a prisoner exchange, but not for the weapons dealer.

And that's pretty much the standstill we are at. The US knows he is too dangerous to give up, but they also want to get Griner home as soon as possible. Really it comes down to when Russia is willing to make a reasonable trade. Knowing the US government, they are totally interested in a prisoner exchange. But, it has to be a "fair" one, or else we will just tell Russia to fuck off.

Isn't the dude who was accused of spying in the same trade? Griner + "spy" dude for the dealer?

yes, somewhere i read, for normal Russians u can get max like 3 months, but most of the time u just got fine and thats it. 10 years is stupid. I mean in Lithuania law works kinda same way, for weed u can get like 4 years in jail, but 98% of time u just get penalty and thats it.

Is it for owning or selling? Here where I live in New York, anyone is allowed to have weed. But you will get a fine if you smoke around children in public or at schools. And you will only be given jail if you are caught selling large amounts of weed without proper paperwork from the government saying you can sell. But it has to be a REALLY REALLY BIG amount. I had a friend who was caught trying to sell 2oz of weed to an undercover cop (which is big amount for one person, but not criminal dealers) and they only gave him a fine and probation for a few years- no actual jail. Is it similar where you are?

i mean, weed is illegal in LIthuania for all purpose. I dont know all nuances in law, but i believe here no difference between u selling or owning, if police catch u with weed, almost 100% u will pay penalty, also u will get criminal record too. Now some new peoples comes in government , they trying to change law for small usage of weed, but here no progress at all. U probably can avoid criminal record for very very small amount of weed, but u still have to pay fine.
2022-08-04 18:32
having 1 to 3 grams results in a fine, having more results in 1-3 years and if the intent to sell is proven you might get more, smuggling counts as well it's really crazy tbh but you can also pay cops 10K bucks or more and go free (unless they need you to make their arrest quota - then u r fucked)

Well, the law here sets the minimum amount for which a person can be persecuted at a single dose. The amount of a single dose is not specifically set by law, however, it is mostly regarded as 0.5 g. (our police also tend to exaggerate the amout of doses they find during raids, which they post on their official Facebook page) they recently issued a new law in regards to marijuana, but the length of a sentence is still decided by doses

"Sorry we're better" you really live up to the fact Americans are really bad at geography. I'd suggest you to google "modern slavery in the United States" and there's a whole lot for you to unpack. Or maybe watch the movie "Fireboys" for example. Also the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution allows modern slavery. Saying your stupid ass shit about someone getting sentenced for 9 years in jail for something like this means you support these horrendous laws that the US also upholds.

It is ironic, but typically countries with rampant degeneracy and drug use have some of the toughest laws on drug use by contrast to the West where light drugs in particular are often decriminalised and treated primarily as an addiction / mental health problem. Most countries - and presumably Russia too - have some form of sentencing guidelines. There is naturally a political element too, but her sentence is in all likelihood a little above the average of what she could otherwise expect to receive within the judge's remit of discretion. It's probably a little excessive, but not grossly so.

Yeah… a bit harsh… it’s just a bad timing for her! If she was not American they would probably not even check her… so very unlucky. On the other hand, she was not supposed to have drugs on her, cause that is illegal in 99% of the world and she is lucky that she wasn’t arrested in Singapore… they had a death sentence till 2012. One more thing… this portraying of Russian weapons dealer, killer etc in exchange for basketball player and ex marine is so dumb… it’s just exchanging PRISONERS. They must have done something to get in that situation and I gave no sympathy for anyone that brakes the law and abuse the system and lives of innocent!

"Yeah… a bit harsh… it’s just a bad timing for her! If she was not American they would probably not even check her… so very unlucky." exaclty. I even think she would have gotten a lighter sentence if she was a random European person. But since shes American Russia can user her. Yes, i agree, she probably should have left that at home, i mean, i doubt she accidentally packed it down her suitcase but still.

Let’s start by saying she’s an idiot for even bringing any illegal substances into a foreign country… not to mention she has literally said she hates the US. Not many people here are thrilled about trading a literal war criminal for a nobody femal basketball player who hates her country.
