Brittney Griner Pens Open Letter to Joe Biden


Five months ago WNBA player Brittney Griner was detained in Russia after a vape pen and cannabis oil cartridges were found in her luggage at Moscow International Airport [click here if you missed that]. 

Brittney, who faces up to 10 in prison if convicted, has written a letter to the President pleading for help...

From PBS
Griner’s agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas said the letter was delivered on Monday. Most of the letter’s contents to President Biden remain private, though Griner’s representatives shared a few lines from the hand-written note.
“…As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever,” Griner wrote.
“On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran,” the Phoenix Mercury center added. “It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.”
“Please do all you can to bring us home. I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you. I believe in you. I still have so much good to do with my freedom that you can help restore,” Griner said “I miss my wife! I miss my family! I miss my teammates! It kills me to know they are suffering so much right now. I am grateful for whatever you can do at this moment to get me home.”

Sad. I hope she comes home soon. Safe and unharmed.

Biden needs to trade her for a Russian prisoner or give back a ship that he had seized from a Russian oligarch. Do something.

She had horrible timing.

Tensions are so high and respect so low that Joe can't pick up the phone to tell Vlad he will pay him 2 million shekles to slap this woman on the wrist and send her back. Hate to bring this up but see we got ASAP back .

Why are you worried about Trump? He was two years ago. The topic is Britney in jail, and Biden has yet to help. Her jail time served her right when she denounced America. That's her karma. A white guy just received ten years for doing the same thing. Why should she be any different?

I get so heated when people like her and Kanye say vote and never do, until its profitable for them. We are doomed if black people only vote when it's profitable. Vote every single time my people. That is why white people are constantly getting what they want because they go to the polls EVERYTIME!!!!

Majority of America was cashing TRUMP checks. He was keeping the Foreign Goons off our backs and greasing all their pockets. If we got a few measly thousand here and there. F*ck it but this nothing shit sucks. After they crop dusted us, watched people die by the hundred, lied to us about it, bullied people to get some ridiculous vaccine no one is talking about anymore or stand by and do nothing regarding a totally avoidable war, raised the gas prices higher than the insurance a month its just bad. I agree Brittney send somebody to help us. Shit !

@10:31, that part. Don't travel or work in a country that are not our allies.

Gotcha! The president is elected by the Electoral College, not citizens. It's a rigged system.

Don't do dumb shit in foreign countries. It ain't worth it. And folks need to stop relying so much on weed and other drugs. Get some coping skills.

I hope she's able to come home alive, but American's need to know you cannot f*ck around in foreign countries, most don't even like American's and I can't believe she did that in Russia of all places, given the climate we are in what was she thinking? foreign have their rules no matter what we think of it, it's not your country and she could have waited till she got home, and get all the liquid weed or whatever it was she was illegally trying to take out of that country. I need my people to do better.

If Brittany, or her team, had done a simple travel advisory check, she would have seen the warnings for Americans to evacuate that area due to Putin initiating war. I don't have any sympathy for Brittany. The travel warnings alone should have been enough to keep her black ass in America- but to there anyway, with illegal paraphernalia, was just fucking stupid!

The pro-cannabis crowd isn't making any noise because they can't market her misfortune for their benefit.

this is more about politics than cannabis. If and imean if she did take a cartridge in it probably wasn’t the first time, most likely exceptions were made. F’n cartridge not buds. Unfortunately she took the risk to go work for them instead of ‘reading the room’. Free Britney!
