I hadn’t considered that. I still don’t think we should trade a prisoner, but if our government trades a criminal for her doesn’t that mean it should be federally legal here in the states? Biden said she was wrongfully detainment and it’s unacceptable.
When they made it legal in California it didn't matter to me as I don't like it, but work Informed us that we still fell under federal rules so we couldn't smoke it.

Personally I don't care, it should be treated the same as alcohol, as in you shouldn't have it in your system at work or driving.

This is the truth they had some documentary that actually showcased how much she knew about Russia a few years back she played in some weird town she definitely knew russian culture.playing in russia since 2014 almost a decade.
Which may give creedence to her lawyer's statements that it was an honest mistake that she accidentally packed it - or rather - didn't unpack it. Sort of like those idiots who forget to take their gun out of their carry-on when they are getting on a plane.

But the irony of us trading a prisoner (which is what will eventually happen) to bail someone out who was doing something that's still illegal in most states here isn't lost on me.

9 years is crazy.

Lol I got pulled aside at TSA becuse I had a 22 shell stuck in the corner of my backpack. The lady told me it was no big deal and they’ve seen it numerous times. I like to believe she was a victim of my charm.

I figure that's gotta happen a lot here in MI.

This whole deal about wnba women overseas sounds like money laundering in russia or china. Griner made 1.5 mil in russia per year and made 221k in the WNBA. Traveling to this sort of strict country was not her first rodeo she used to play in china before russia.

It’s cute that the ESPN people are making the narrative that if WNBA players made the same pay as NBA players, she wouldn’t have to go overseas to earn extra money. Nevermind the fact that she broke the law. She allegedly said Russia was her second home. She knew the rules and tried to skate by because of who she is. Yes, the penalty is harsh, but it’s the same as any of us would face. Would there by anyone trying to trade a criminal for one of us if we got caught with drugs in Russia? I think not.

LOL @ the argument for WNBA players to make the same as NBA players. They are lucky they have a league at all. Boys High School basketball games get more attendance than their shitty league. It's embarrassing. And most of the tickets are free from corporate sponsors. Nobody is paying to see that garbage so why should they make what the men do? I can't believe she makes over $200k a year. That's insane.

Women have a beef with other sports on making as much as the men - soccer, volleyball, porn,, etc... But not basketball. GTFO.

Agreed. I'd be curious what the attendance for women's hoops is over there. I doubt it warrants that type of salary. It's a shit product. There's no way they are packing the stands.

I keep seeing this narrative that she accidentally packed the cart in her bag. She was leaving Russia not arriving.


“Griner is being held by Russian authorities after they allegedly found hashish oil on her while she was attempting to leave the country”

Guarantee she traveled with it every time. She just got her privilege revoked.

Her first defense was it was planted
Her second was she has a medical card

I have a hard time believing a millionaire athlete who has medical exemption is living months without using.
I find it more realistic she thought she was above the law and dumb enough not to throw it away and buy another one when she lands.

Agreed. It’s definitely not the same. The pro woman are good, but not great. I’ve been to several WNBA games when i was younger. Tickets were cheap and nowhere near sold out

I practiced with a WNBA team a couple of times back in the day. They would bring in guys to play against during training camp. We all had full tome jobs and played basketball and football for fun. Any of us could have made that team if we didn’t have cocks and balls. My same team played in Rec leagues and travel leagues. We played a team full of former Big 10 athletes, non of which went pro. The first time they beat us by 10 and we thought we were good to go. Played them 2 other times and got ran out of the gym. That Rec team could’ve probably beat any WNBA team, no problem.

Ladies basketball doesn't make the $$$, so they don't get paid huge $$$.
I have never watched it, nothing against ladies balling but it just isn't interesting or worth many folks time.

Comparing NBA salaries to WNBA salaries is comparing raisins to watermelons

Seriously. What sacrifice is being respected?

I think it's stupid and unAmerican
Seems like we're having two different conversations. You can let it be whatever you want it to be. Sit, stand, I don't personally care. I was offering a general consensus for those who are confused by a very basic idea.
