Wiz Khalifa Busted For Marijuana In North Carolina
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, May, 2nd 2012 by THCFinder
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 at an unspecified later date.
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.
Jimmy Kimmel Addresses Marijuana Legalization at White House Correspondents' Dinner
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, April, 30th 2012 by THCFinder
Jimmy Kimmel sparked the most appropriate dinner table conversation while at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night: the legalization of marijuana. “What is with the marijuana crackdown? Seriously, what is the concern? We will deplete the nation's Funyun supply?” Kimmel joked. “Pot smokers vote too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote.”
Kimmel continued to steal the show, asking everyone in the room to raise their hand if they had never smoked weed before. When only a few hands when up, Kimmel spoke directly to President Barack Obama and said, “Marijuana is something that real people care about.”
While there’s been a recent nationwide crackdown on medical marijuana producers, President Obama says he would entertain a debate about drug legalization. Following Kimmel’s speech, a deputy for Attorney General Eric Holder said that there’s no designated war on medical marijuana, but individual clinics were breaking state and federal laws.
Between Kimmel’s speech, Obama’s Jeezy shout out, and the numerous Instagram pics, it appears as though the "nerd prom" was pretty poppin’.
