Wiz Khalifa Cited For Marijuana Possession In Nashville


Via The Tennessean


Metro Police said rapper Wiz Khalifa was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Nashville on Saturday after investigators were called to his hotel room at the Holiday Inn on West End Avenue at about 8 p.m.


Wiz Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, 24, was in town to perform at Vanderbilt University's Rites of Spring concert, where he was the headliner.


Police said the front desk staff at the hotel called police and reported that they'd received several complaints about marijuana use in room 725, where the rapper was staying.


The front desk staff told investigators that they'd been up to the room and told the rapper and another man, Lonnie Howard, 27, about the complaints, police said.


Once officers arrived and went up to the seventh floor of the hotel, they smelled marijuana, knocked on the door to the room and when the door was opened, they saw the rapper throw a marijuana blunt out the window, police said.


When asked if there was any more marijuana in the room, both Thomaz and Howard said there wasn't, but police later found more marijuana on Howard, police said.


Both suspects later admitted to having the marijuana and were cited for the misdemeanor possession, police said.


They have until May 14 to show up at the Davidson County courthouse for booking on the charges.


According to Thomaz's Twitter account, he left Nashville on Sunday and has been in New York this week.

@SonGetWrec, lmao I know your cousins loving life right now !! yea I never been to cali, but from what i hear, and some of my friends out there, marijuana is practically legal out there, like the cops won't even f*ck with u ... the other day, one of my boys from cali was over here, and he sparked up a sour in the middle of the main ave , I looked at him like he was crazy and asked if he didn't care about getting bagged, the kid littereally looked at me like, "are u f*cking serious, they will bring me in for this blunt right here " he lit it up and said, f*ck it, if they would take me in for that nonsense, lets go .... thats cali's people mentality, they don't understand the bullsh*t we go through on this side.

@top 3 = Ross/Banks/Kiss...word mane. myself, i NEVER liked alcohol. for years i drank socially, but then i just stopped period. i'd much rather get high than drunk. unfortunately marijuana is still illegal so i can't even do that! sounds like i need to move to new york or cali where its decriminalized to an extent. my cousins in cali were able to obtain marijuana permits no lie. they can legally carry a certain amount of canabis on them and use it privately. i don't know how they did it though. they aint got glaucoma or cancer LOL.

@SonGetWrec u already know, and @Smyrno,just so you know, cause i'm sure u probably don't know from your comment, billions of dollars are made through taxpayers each year by arresting people with weed possession. Marijuana supports the judicial system. if they was to make it completely legal, at least in new york, alot of police officers, lawyers, prosecutors and judges will be without a job. Who you think pays the judges, public defenders, cops, prosecutors ??? that money comes from you, "the tax payer" , and there are millions of taxpayers, and they use your hard earned money to say, hey citizen, with your tax dollar, which was millions upon millions last year, we did a great job and service for you by arresting wiz khalifa because he was smoking marijuana, I understand he wasn't bothering me or anyone but we arrested him, thanks for paying your taxes !!! and if you think i'm defending marijuana because i'm probably a smoker, guess what, i'm don't smoke weed, But i'm tired of seeing my people, all of us minorities, being used as bait to justify taxpayers money.

can some one please explain to me why marijuana is illegal while alcohol isn't ?? (next time you go to your local dmv, ask for the statistics in alcohol related deaths just for the past year, and after they give it to you, ask for the statistics in marijuana releated deaths since the beginning of time. they won't have nothing to give you because the answer is zero .

and this made headlines ??? this aint bad news, this is good news ... In new york, (which is one of the only states where marijuana is decreminilized)police arrest every person in possession no matter how small of a quantitiy when they should just be cited the same way wiz khalifa was cited, but yea my fault, i forgot that citations don't really make money for the cops, d.a., prosecutors, lawyers, judges, ect ... like arresting and populating the jails and prison system does !!
