It's nearly been five months since Russian authorities detained Brittney Griner. On February 17, 

 customs officers searched her bag and set up hashish oil painting, or cannabis oil painting, in the form of vape charges.

The WNBA star has since contended shamefaced to Russian medicine charges, 

but maintained that it was an accident and she was not designedly smuggling illegal medicines into the country. 

" There was no intent. I did not want to break the law," Griner said in court before in July. However, Griner could face up to 10 times, If doomed. 

In addition to the WNBA, Griner has represented the United States at the 2016 and 2020 Summer Olympics, winning one gold order each. 

She's also played with the Russian Women's Basketball Premier League during the WNBA offseason, which is why she was in Russia at the time of her detainment. 

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have conceded Griner's detention, but no importance seems to pass in the way of her release.
