“I would really appreciate it if we could pass this law before I die,” she added.

It looks like 2 Chainz is officially off the hook.
The Grammy-nominated rapper—whose real name is Tauheed Epps—was found not guilty today on marijuana charges stemming from a traffic stop on Valentine's Day, according to local reports.
According to the police report, Epps' vehicle was pulled over for speeding in Maryland for driving 79 mph in a 55 mph zone.
"Upon approaching the van, an odor of marijuana was smelled coming from the vehicle," a spokesman for the Maryland State Police told E! News in February. "A probable cause search was executed and a backpack was found with a grinder and trace evidence of marijuana."
2 Chainz was found not guilty on both charges, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
