This fat blonde dumbass thought it was a good idea to fly to Russia with a shitload of weed she has for “medical reasons” which are probably just an excuse to keep her from ever achieving a healthy weight. I hope the Russian authorities give this landwhale life.
A college student from New York City was arrested and is being held in Russia for allegedly possessing a few grams of medical marijuana, authorities said.
Audrey Eliza Lorber had 19.05 grams, about two-thirds of an ounce, of cannabis in her belongings when she was searched at Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, according to a statement by the St. Petersburg court system.
Authorities said Lorber’s contraband was for medicinal purposes but that the “patent for marijuana use in a medical program issued in the United States that the accused carried with her does not apply to the territory of the Russian Federation,” according to statement by the St. Petersburg court statement.
That statement was issued on Sept. 2, but did not say when the alleged offense occurred.
“I’m working to help get Audrey home as soon as possible because no American citizen should be held in jail for a medical condition,” Rep. Max Rose, D-N.Y., said in a statement over the weekend.
Rose represents the New York City borough of Staten Island where Lorder lives.
Lorber is a student at Pace University in New York, the school confirmed. She calls herself an aspiring filmmaker on her LinkedIn page.
A woman who picked up the phone listed for Lorber’s Staten Island home declined to comment on Monday.
This is completely ridiculous. She isn’t being held in jail because of her medical condition, she is being held in jail because she broke Russian laws by bringing drugs into the country. Honestly, she should be held in jail in this country as should anyone possessing marijuana which is still illegal. I know that’s not a popular opinion but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s still an illegal substance in most places.
I don’t really care about people smoking weed, but this was just stupid and arrogant on her part. It was her responsibility to determine if she would be able to bring weed into the country using her bullshit medical excuse. I hope the Russians prosecute her.
You mean to tell us that the Russia that invaded and has held Crimea does not buy into the edible marijuana cures for glaucoma, hair loss, degenerative discs, social awkwardness, sprained knees, chemotherapy, forgetfulness, and assorted neurological cases?
Would you prefer to live in a lawless state? Or do you just believe that the laws of other countries are not applicable to Americans? If so you sound like a real liberal elitist which is not surprising.
