Brittney Griner, W.N.B.A. Star Is Detained in Russia over vape cartridges

WNBA All-Star Brittney Griner was arrested last month at a Moscow airport after Russian authorities said a search of her luggage revealed vape cartridges. The Russian Customs Service said Saturday that the cartridges were identified as containing oil derived from cannabis, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The customs service identified the person arrested as a player for the U.S. women’s team and did not specify the date of her arrest. Russian media reported the player was Griner, and her agent, Lindsay Kagawa Colas, did not dispute those reports.

  1. Hello Star. I was listening to the segment in regards to diet and Diabetes. Many foods that many commonly associate as "Black People" foods are Deep South foods and dishes. Many of us are overweight and suffer health conditions. Now, this sugar in the grits. Most Southerners don't play that. Basics, butter, salt and pepper. Now, remember we're Southerners so we may do the shrimp, bacon or whatever. That's special occasions. The mayo on both sides can go both ways. Especially those eating banana sandwichs- not Black folks. We are different down here.

  2. I really appreciate this diabetic conversation. I am diabetic and I actually learned a lot from this video. So much so, I'm going the doctor to start a new diet plan for health.
