MOSCOW—WNBA superstar Brittney Griner celebrated 140 days being drug free today while serving a 9-year-sentence for possessing marijuana in Russia.
Griner famously quit taking drugs when she was taken into custody in Moscow for smuggling a marijuana vape pen into the country.
US President* Joe Biden sent his support to Griner via tweet, saying “You’re an inspiration to us all and I hope you keep up the hard work. Drugs are horrible and they can completely destroy your life, so I’m happy to see you’ve been sober for so long.”
Griner’s previous personal record for sobriety is believed to be in 2017, when she finished his most recent stint in prison.
