Despite it being an International breach of Postal Regulation, was she PRESCRIBED these medications legally in the USA?

So? She wasn't in the USA, and if we're going to get down to it, the USA has a MAJOR oxycodone problem, so whatever they're doing, it's clearly wrong.

So yeah, who cares where she got her drugs.

For most prescription drugs, one is allowed to import a one-month supply at a time. However, certain prescription drugs require special permission from the government. And, some, are simply not allowed at all.

Opiates definitely fall into one of the latter categories.

If it can source battery, it can sell millions of EVs.

why Toyota make the worlds best solid state batteries, although not as cheap as China.

Toyota is just pushing the hydrogen vehicle which is invested heavily in, unfortunately itll never challenge BEV in the long term

Toyota is facing a global backlash for dragging its feet on EVs, so I guess it's really desperate for PR people.

Toyota is not dragging its feet, like Tesla, it can't source enough battery ir components.

If it can source battery, it can sell millions of EVs.

China has been holding back supply of battery, battery materials etc., so as to disadvantage non-Chinese brands, and it's not just battery, Tesla has got toolings held up in port in China, and component makers are also holding back supply to foreign companies like Tesla.

Don't believe the covid narrative, China's own brands has supply, and China hosting the winter Olympic is further proof it can manage covid without restricting movement, when it suits them.

There's quite a bit of room to make a court case out of. If she WAS, then I believe five years in prison is quite excessive

Ms. Hamp was arrested, released and never prosecuted. She didn't spend five years in jail. The Japanese "justice" system may be horrendous, but it hasn't reached that stage yet.

She must be very good at her job!

Also, not bearing a grudge against Japan.

Well done her, it is a bit like giving the Japanese system the middle finger.
