    CNN said that she carried less than 1 gram:

    I don't know if that's 1 gram of oil total, 1 gram of THC content put into the vaping oil, or what. For an order of magnitude estimate: Given that 1g of water is 1cc/1mL of volume, it doesn't seem like it'd be a lot. A quick search suggests that vaping cartridges are 0.5 to 1 mL. :dunno:

    The same people who cry for gun control are willing to release a man who buys and sells literally every implement of death without so much as a Form 4473 or Form 4 in exchange for a Amazon pronoun creature with a penchant for cannabis.

    Anxiety for having lived in Trump's America?


    It looks like at least 4 containers from the security footage:

    I'm not a vapor or partaker, so I don't know much about the sizes of the various parts, but I think the cartridges are relatively small?
    Ok, I had a co-worker that vapes, that looks like a personal amount; he had those bottles on his desk. Not for the whole team like someone intimated.

    Yeah, I am not sure. The actual cartridges are rather small compared to those tennis ball container sized tubes. CNN reported that the Russian prosecutor accused her of having less than 1 gram of the banned substance. I think given your comments in post 21, we have a lot of agreement on general sentiment about her treatment.

    That said, I don't think we should trade her for a militant if she actually broke the law and is sentenced according to their guidelines (even if we think those guidelines are being abused for political purposes). A near maximum sentence for a first time offense for pot with no commercial intention is a bit much. It does seem that the primary difference in sentencing is due to the fact that it was being brought into the country: https://reason.com/2022/08/05/britt...rences-between-russian-and-u-s-pot-penalties/
