Rapper Wiz Khalifa Arrested Again In NC For Marijuana

Police in Winston-Salem have cited rapper Wiz Khalifa and members of his band and staff for possession of marijuana following a concert.
The singer faced drug charges in 2010 after a stop in Greenville.

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.

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

Charges against the rapper arrested after his performance at East Carolina University were dropped last year. The district attorney said there was not enough marijuana on the rapper's tour bus to meet the drug trafficking charge.
