Clay Pierce, an Oregon medical marijuana cardholder, is imprisoned in the notorious Mariona prison in El Salvador for 36 grams of cannabis. This story is an important notice to all Oregonians: just because you are traveling from one legal cannabis location to another, we must be aware of the laws in our connecting flight locations. 

In October, Mr. Pierce sold everything he had in Oregon and was moving to Colombia when his flight to Colombia had a brief scheduled stop in San Salvador, the capitol of El Salvador. 

On November 1, while he was in the airport, waiting on his connecting flight, the El Salvador authorities searched his checked bag and found a small amount of marijuana and a book on growing. Pierce was just on a connecting flight, he wasn't visiting El Salvador. Pierce was legal in Oregon, where he was coming from, and he was legal in Colombia, where he was going to. Pierce had no intention of being in El Salvador, it was an airline connecting flight. They arrested him, charged him with drug trafficking for a small amount of personal use medical cannabis and put him in what many people consider to be the worst prison in the world, Mariona.
