Staten Island woman arrested in Russia for allegedly bringing marijuana into the country

Source: CNN

A New York woman has been arrested in Russia on suspicion of possessing marijuana that she said was for medicinal purposes, Russian courts told CNN on Tuesday.

Audrey Eliza Lorber was arrested on charges of transporting cannabis into Russia from the United States, after marijuana weighing about 19 grams was found during a search of her possessions at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Airport, courts press service representative Darya Lebedeva told CNN.

Nineteen grams is nearly 3/4 of an ounce.

Lorber had a US permit to use marijuana as part of a medical program, but the permit doesn't apply in Russian territory, Lebedeva said.

8. She's Russian

She was visiting her family. I for one would love to go. The government isn't but the country is beautiful.

7. Wouldn't want to be her.

I crossed the border into Canada to Niagara Falls back in the '80s and left my weed at home. It killed me, but I wasn't going to take the chance.

To say the least, I would have relied on local sources in Russia.

9. Russia is fantastic.

The government? Not so much.

Moscow has the most gorgeous and best metro system in the world, by a mile.

13. Good grief woman!

WTH? A few grams probably wouldn’t have been detected but 19! Come on. She was asking for it.

Know the laws of the country to which you are travelling. FOLLOW THOSE LAWS.
