Report: Wiz Khalifa Arrested For Pot Possession. Weed-happy Wiz Khalifa didn't get the memo that Prop 19 didn't pass - and even if he did, it wouldn't have helped him out. Wiz Khalifa was arrested in North Carolina for...pot possession.
Of course, I can't really blame North Carolina authorities for targeting him at a concert. After all, Khalifa has been boastful of his $10,000 a month pot habit.
The "Waken Baken" tour was halted 45 minutes into the concert. They raided his tour bus and found...pot.
Come on...the dude even has his own line of rolling paper.
This is sort of a good example of why perhaps passing prop 19 would be good. After all, the pot smoking by Wiz Khalifa poses little threat to society, yet a considerable amount of taxpayer dollars were spent on the raid. In addition, the money that this guy throws out on weed, don't you think if it was legal he'd be able to be legit, create jobs, and keep money in the US?
I'm just saying. I know that a rapper like Wiz Khalifa isn't exactly a good poster boy for legal reform. However, the amount of money spent on his apprehension does go to show you that sometimes marijuana related legal issues cost more than they are worth.
