TOmi Laren, a conservative media commentator, spoke out harshly about WNBA star Britney Greener on Twitter after she was sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison this week after Russian officials found THC oil in a gym bag.
They found cannabis oil
After pleading guilty sincerely in court, Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to drug possession in July. She was initially detained in February of this year when she entered the country and airport officials found an electronic vaporizer pen with less than one gram of cannabis oil.
Joe Biden demanded her release
Immediately after the Russian authorities sentenced her, President Joe Biden issued a public statement demanding her immediate release. The WNBA was also unhappy with the court’s decision, as it was called very harsh.
This is what lack of justice looks like
And as soon as the news of Griner’s sentencing broke, Tomi Laren tweeted that her situation was a “cautionary tale,” saying that if Griner thought the United States of America was “despotic,” she is now figuring out that “lack of justice looks like “and also using sarcasm as a grinding tool, she also mentioned that it was “really bad, too sad”.
9 years did not listen to the anthem
And if that wasn’t enough, Laren went on to share her take on the matter, saying that at least the basketball star “wouldn’t have to endure our national anthem for 9 whole years!” and she doubled down on her opinion by saying it was a win for Griner.
For Greener, this is not the end.
The Greener case is still ongoing as it has become a political affair between two of the most powerful countries in the world that have very opposing views on drug policy and law enforcement, while the US has legalized cannabis in many states, Russia has tightened the laws. against those who use cannabis or any other psychoactive substances.
