Brittney Griner appeared in court Tuesday as her legal team shared supporting evidence about the medicinal use of cannabis.

In a hearing that lasted about 40 minutes, Good Morning America reported, the detained WNBA star, 34, appeared behind a steel cage in the courtroom.

The court heard from a narcology expert, The New York Times reported, per Griner's lawyers, in an effort to explain that medical cannabis "is a popular treatment, specifically among athletes."

"With the prescription in place, Brittney may have used it for medical, but not for recreational purposes," said Maria Blagovolina, one of the attorneys.

"The attending physician gave Brittney recommendations for the use of medical cannabis. The permission was issued on behalf of the Arizona Department of Health," Blagovolina during Griner's fourth hearing since her arrest, The Associated Press reported.

The American athlete's defense team also submitted the results of anti-doping tests taken by Griner showing no signs of illegal substances in her system, the outlet added.

In addition, Julie was convicted of wire fraud. The Chrisley Knows Best stars will be sentenced on Oct. 6 and could face up to 30 years in jail.

Alexander Boykov, another defense attorney, said that they are sticking with the argument that the cannabis ended up in her luggage by mistake and that the athlete had no criminal intent.

"We are not arguing that Brittney took it here as a medicine. We are still saying that she involuntarily brought it here because she was in a rush," he said, according to the AP.

"The Russian public has to know, and the Russian court in the first place has to know, that it was not used for recreational purposes in the United States. It was prescribed by a doctor," Boykov continued.

After canceling First Kill, Netflix unveils a cringey new dating show

  After canceling First Kill, Netflix unveils a cringey new dating show A Netflix representative called First Kill showrunner Felicia D. Henderson to give her the bad news over the phone. Her 8-episode Netflix series, a teen vampire drama that seemed from the outside to have attracted a hardcore fanbase, wouldn’t be getting a second season. Notwithstanding the series having cracked the Netflix Top 10 global chart — quite a feat right out of the gate — the rep from the streamer went on to explain that the reason for the cancellation, per our sister publication The Wrap, was that “the completion rate wasn’t high enough.” As we noted in an earlier post, this news predictably sent fans into an uproar.

"Good luck on the bar exam," Griner told her wife.

"How do you feel? Do you have any complaints," the producer asked.

"No, no complaints. Just waiting patiently," she replied. Griner is expected to testify tomorrow.

On July 7,  the two-time Olympic gold medalist pleaded guilty to possessing vape canisters containing cannabis oil in her luggage at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport in February.
