Wiz Khalifa has been arrested numerous times for possessing weed, which is not surprising for an artist whose lyrics are riddled with marijuana references. During his most recent altercation with the cops in regards to the drug, Wiz Khalifa lit up while on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards in May this year.
However, a cop who was in the vicinity was quick to spot him and demanded that the rapper put away the joint or spend the night in jail. Wiz Khalifa, who was set to perform during the event, followed the order and was allowed to proceed, reports Complex.
However, in May of last year, Wiz Khalifa didn’t get off so easily and was arrested. According to TMZ, Wiz Khalifa was taking a flight from El Paso to Dallas when the authorities found “a green leafy substance.” Wiz Khalifa was immediately taken into custody and handed over to the local police. According to the site, the substance was discovered to be 0.5 grams of marijuana.
Wiz Khalifa posted the following tweets while in custody, according to Rolling Stone.
“I wanna drop 28 Grams but they got me locced up.”
“Soon as I get out, the tapes comin out. F*** that.”
According to Esquire, which visited his residence in Aspen, Colorado, in January this year, Wiz Khalifa really loves his weed. The following is a short description of the visit.
“When exiting the elevator, the smell is unmistakable: weed. Pungent. Floral. The good stuff. The source? Wiz Khalifa’s room here in Aspen, Colorado. Upon entering it, you’re greeted by five of his traveling cohorts, and what appears to be nearly a half-pound of marijuana spread out on the table like a Thanksgiving harvest. “Gimme that bong!” Khalifa says, lighting its bowl and filling up the clear glass chamber with enough pot smoke so that it resembles a small jug of milk.”
And last Friday, his concert at the Vector Arena in Auckland had a large number of fans smoking weed. As the show started, Wiz Khalifa came on stage with what looked like a joint in hand and passed it to an exhilarated crowd surfer. And shortly after, Wiz Khalifa asked the crowd who was smoking the best “product.” Judging by the response and smoke clouds, almost everyone was smoking weed, according to Stuff.
Apparently, the guards tried to kick out some of the stoners but soon gave up as everyone would have to be taken out including Wiz Khalifa. Instead, the air conditioning was turned up high.
