Rapper Wiz Khalifa busted in NC for marijuana


WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- Police in Winston-Salem have cited rapper Wiz Khalifa and members of his band and staff for possession of marijuana following a concert.

Local police were patrolling the parking lot at the Joel Coliseum Annex where the rapper was performing Tuesday. An officer approached the tour bus and smelled either burnt or burning marijuana. The officer said in a search warrant that the smell got stronger when he opened the bus door,

A search warrant said an officer seized a quantity of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, but police wouldn't say how much marijuana or paraphernalia was found.

The rapper, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, is scheduled to appear in court in Winston-Salem on July 27.

Thomas was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Nashville, Tenn., last month.
