Wiz Khalifa cited for simple possession of marijuana

Wiz Khalifa found himself on the wrong side of the law in North Carolina on Tuesday night when he was cited for simple possession of marijuana, along with members of his music group and staff.

According to the Winston-Salem Police Department, the charges stem from marijuana use on Khalifa's tour buses before his concert in the area.

It appears that Khalifa was later released, and on Wednesday afternoon, he told a Twitter follower who brought up the incident, "Hey, it happens." The rapper has a court date regarding the matter set for July 27, 2012.

Last week, Rolling Stone reported that Khalifa was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession while he was in Nashville for a performance.

The artist was said to have been in a Holiday Inn when police received complaints about the smell of marijuana allegedly coming from Khalifa's room.

    Now if your black, rapper, and your names is Wiz Khalifa...it's not racial profiling when you get busted for marijuana. You're just plain stupid when you meet all those criteria and get caught not looking over your shoulder and get busted. Enjoy your 15 min of fame hope it last long enough to cover the advances from the record company before you're broke and in the street.
