ECU Students: Not Surprised With Wiz Khalifa Arrest

By  | 

ECU students we talked with say they're not surprised with the arrest of rapper Wiz Khalifa and several of his group members on marijuana charges because they say that's what their music is about.

Brittany Holmes is a senior at ECU and was ushering the concert at Wright auditorium. She says many of Khalifa's songs mention smoking marijuana and says a lot of the merchandise being sold at his concert, like t-shirts and ball caps, had marijuana pictures on them.

Like Holmes, other students say they're not surprised Khalifa and his group members were arrested for having over 60 grams, or $1,000 worth of marijuana on their bus, and say they're proud police ignored celebrity status and arrested them.
