USA has been putting people with drugs in prison for decades. But it's wrong when another country does it? There must be more to this story that I'm missing if they are willing to swap an arms dealer for a basketball player.

Trading an arms dealer for an American citizen seems sketch. They're using her as a political prop.

Fun Facts: The US-Military was a Customer of Viktor Bout, too. Even when sanctions against him were already in place (scince 2001) they resorted to his services from his sanctioned companies. The US Government even tried to get the sanctions against him lifted in 2004. He was a wanted scince 2002 by interpol. He was arrested 2008 in Thailand.

Not quite sure less than a gram of cannabis oil constitutes addiction.
