News: Wiz Khalifa Blows Smoke At Marijuana Bust, "It Happens"
Thursday, May 3, 2012 9:12AM
Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa is showing making headlines for another marijuana bust is nothing spectacular by briefly addressing the matter on his Twitter page this week.
Rather than sway away from what went down Tuesday (May 1) night, Khalifa took on fans' questions on the topic.
On his official Twitter feed Wednesday afternoon, Khalifa seemed to be taking the citation in stride, responding to one person's tweet about the charges with, "Hey, it happens." And when another person posted that he or she appreciated him coming to Winston-Salem and apologized for how the police treated him, Khalifa replied, "They juss (sic) did their job." The court date on the Winston-Salem case is set for July 27. (Winston-Salem Journal)
Details of the bust began circulating online yesterday morning.
Wiz Khalifa -- who famously raps about rolling joints "bigger than King Kong's fingers" -- was busted for weed AGAIN last night ... the 2nd time in 10 days. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office in North Carolina tells us ... the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana after his concert in Winston-Salem last night. We're told officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus. Wiz was cited and released -- and is required to appear in court at a later date. (TMZ)
Just last week, Khalifa made morning news over a weed bust in Tennessee.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Metro Nashville Police responded to Wiz's room on April 21 after someone complained about a strong odor of marijuana. When officers arrived to the scene, Wiz -- real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz -- allegedly tossed a "marijuana cigarette" out of the window. Cops say they recovered the item ... saying, "inside the rolling paper was a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana." According to the report, Wiz eventually admitted the joint was his and said he had 3.7 grams of weed in his pocket. Wiz -- who's VERY open about his marijuana use -- was hit with a citation ... and probably smoked more weed after the officers left. (TMZ)
The rapper recently revealed his fiancee Amber Rose's stance on weed smoking.
"[Weed smoking?] She's like, 'Get it away.' She doesn't hate it, but she will not do it. She'll roll it, she loves how it smells... She just doesn't want to get high 'cause she don't want to feel that." (Hot 97)
