KHIMKI, Russia –
A Russian court on Thursday found American basketball star Brittney Griner guilty of drug possession and trafficking after pleading guilty to bringing cannabis-infused vape cartridges to Russia.
In its ruling, the court said Griner committed the crime “deliberately”, although the defendant said it was an “honest mistake”.
