On a petition, Jasmine Coverson explains ..

After active duty, Monique and her partner Larissa later returned to Kuwait to work as military contractors. On the the morning of May 8, 2015, their house was raided and police confiscated one ounce of a “tobacco-like” substance.

It was sent to a lab in Germany for analysis, and it was determined to be a substance that is completely legal in Kuwait.

Yet, Kuwaiti officials held them in prison anyway. After 8 months of uncharged incarceration, the one ounce of legal substance magically turned into one pound of marijuana, and on January 12, 2016, Monique and Larissa were sentenced to 20-25 years  in prison.

At times I write about uncomfortable things, I like to remember the good ones.
Though I'm not an expert! everything I write should be construed as an opinion.
