It’s no secret that Wiz Khalifa is a marijuana enthusiast, but his love of pot has gotten him in trouble again.
On Wednesday (May 2), TMZ reported that Wiz was ticketed for possession of marijuana after officers discovered 11.39 grams of weed upon a search of Khalifa and his tour bus on Tuesday night in North Carolina. The Pittsburgh MC was “cited and released,” the site reported, but he’s required to appear in court on July 27, 2012.
Just after midnight, the “Black and Yellow” rapper tweeted, “They Hate Us.” He followed that up with a post that read, “Made It Out Alive,” about an hour later. There’s no telling, however, whether Wiz’s cryptic messages were in response to the incident.
This is the second time this year that Khalifa has been busted for smoke. On April 21, the rapper was hit with a citation in Nashville after police searched his hotel room and found his stash. And the latest brush with the law sounds strikingly similar to a 2010 incident where Khalifa was arrested in Greenville, North Carolina, after authorities smelled marijuana smoke coming from his tour bus.
Last Wednesday, Khalifa and Rostrum Records labelmate Mac Miller appeared on MTV News’ weekly hip-hop talk show, “RapFix Live,” where they promoted their upcoming Under the Influence of Music Tour.
Wiz Khalifa’s reps declined to comment on Tuesday’s incident when contacted by MTV News for comment.
