Joe Rogan hopes the people in America locked up with marijuana charges also get freed while the US brings Brittney Griner back home.

Earlier this week, Griner was sentenced to 9 years in prison for drug smuggling after she was caught trying to board an airplane at a Moscow airport while carrying two vape pens filled with hashish oil.

Rogan saw the news and made a post about it on Facebook. In the post, Rogan says he hopes Griner gets freed but also hopes the US government takes a hard look at their own marijuana policies.

“This is some really horrible shit. I hope some sort of a deal can be made to get her out, and I hope this makes us look at our own policies here in America where thousands of people are in jail for cannabis right now.”

During a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan went off on the United States’ marijuana policies amid the Griner situation.

“They’ve got her arrested, it’s against the law and she might do 10 years in jail over there which is f*cking horrific..but here’s what’s important. People are freaking about this, Russia needs to let her go..we have people in America locked up for Marijuana and they’ve been locked up for years and there’s not one, there’s thousands of them…so what they’re not good at throwing a ball at a f*cking net. Is that what it is? They’re not good enough to be let out.”
