Lil Wayne Detained After Marijuana Found On Buses

FALFURRIAS, Texas -- Authorities say Rapper Lil Wayne and 11 people with him have been briefly detained after U.S. Border Patrol officers found marijuana on two of his tour buses.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, and the others were questioned and released Friday night.

Their case was referred to the Brooks County Sheriff's Office.

A sheriff's spokeswoman told The Associated Press that she could not comment.

A drug dog initially detected narcotics on one of the buses, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Marijuana was found during secondary inspections, the agency says.

Lil Wayne's music manager Cortez Bryant and talent agent Cara Lewis have not immediately returned phone messages left at their offices.

Falfurrias is about 80 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.

    Hey shocked you wrote & i quote "Oh my GOD! Not Marajuana!!! It's SOOOOO dangerousshocked" that was what the driver was smoking & under the influence of when he slammed into my grandmother last year on Christmas Eve. Yes, marijuana, an illegal drug. you might think it's no big deal, but this year at Christmas our family will think differently. Maybe you will reconsider your stance, however, you are probably a used so that's not likely. You have a Merry Christmas.

    Oh my GOD! Not Marajuana!!! It's SOOOOO dangerous. Thank God they got him in time. I wonder how many local people were robbed while the authorities were wasting their time searching these buses for pot?

    What galls me is that glorified street scum like this pass themselves off as "artists". The great majority of their "songs" glorify gang violence, drug use, illicit sex and the murder of police officers. Rap is nothing more than bad poetry with a beat.
