US student and medical marijuana patient charged with drug possession in Russia

Audrey Elizabeth Lorber, an American film student, is currently behind bars in Russia facing marijuana possession charges. Russian authorities allege Lorber illegally brought cannabis into the country after police discovered over 19 grams in her possession at the Pulkovo Airport. Based in New York, Lorber is a registered medical cannabis patient. But Russian courts say Lorber’s New York medical cannabis authorization doesn’t extend to Russia. Russia harshly penalizes drugs, and marijuana possession charges can carry a sentence of up to three years.

Flying with legal weed: Does TSA care about marijuana?

Ever since states began legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use, there has been the question of whether it can cause a person any trouble to try and smuggle legal weed on a plane. There have been countless reports published on this subject over the past few years, most of which seem to indicate that it is a relatively riskless feat to challenge airport security to sniff out a bag of dope – at least in legal jurisdictions.

Regardless, most folks in possession of marijuana still get pretty nervous during the pre-flight screening process. But is there really any cause for concern?

Can you afford the most expensive weed in the world?

Some weed smokers are thankful for great deals at their local dispensaries, while others prefer more extravagant strains.

Medium quality marijuana costs about $224 per ounce.

But high-quality weed carries a hefty price tag. And just like with any other item, some types of weed are more expensive than others.

As we all know, cannabis is an agricultural product, so its price fluctuates over time. And the fact that a particular type of weed is the most expensive today does not mean it’ll hold the title tomorrow.

Before we dive into the prices, we should first explain what factors into the price of weed.

Advocates push workers’ right to cannabis use

If you use cannabis on your own time in a state where it is legal, should that be grounds for terminating your employment or rejecting your application for a job? Advocates are starting to say no, and demanding action to protest workers’ rights to use cannabis without the fear of the sack and unemployment.

Some states have already made progress in this direction. Yet California, which led the way toward opening legal space for cannabis with the Propositio 215 medical marijuana initiative in 1996, is not among them. Neither 215 nor the Prop 64 adult-use legalization initiative exactly 20 years later provided any such protections.
