Marc Fogel in trial


Marc Fogel, 60+ years old, was arrested in August of 2021 and sentenced to 14 years in a penal colony in Russia for possession of cannabis. He worked for the US State Dept. and was attached to the US Embassy. He taught English. He also taught History in Columbia, Venezuela, Oman,& Malaysia . He spent the last 10 years teaching in Russia. He is from Pittsburgh. We urge the US State Dept. to include Marc Fogel in its prisoner swap for Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan. We normally only feature cannabis prisoners in the US Federal System but, prohibition of cannabis anywhere is wrong.
