Was It The Odor Or Posted Photo On Instagram? Regardless, Wiz Khalifa Busted In Music City

  • by Allen St. Pierre, Former NORML Executive Director April 26, 2012

    [Update: Wiz busted again for cannabis in Winston-Salem, NC on May 1!]

    The Tennessean reported last night that popular musician Wiz Khalifa and a friend were busted in Nashville after police received complaints of the strong odor of cannabis apparently emanating from Wiz’s hotel room (I’m shocked!). After unsuccessfully trying to ditch a blunt out a window upon police entry, the pair were busted.

    Every 38 seconds in America, another cannabis consumer is busted on ganja charges (850,000 per year), and with a pro-cannabis profile as high as Wiz’s (heck, hours before he was busted he posted a photo to Instagram depicting his branded rolling papers next to what looks like some excellent cannabis!) whether it was his super stinky stash or Wiz’s number as a cannabis consumer simply came up to become yet another tragic statistic in the 74-year old failed Cannabis Prohibition.

    If Wiz needs legal help in Nashville or wants to perform a benefit concert for Tennessee NORML when he has to soon return to deal with their criminal justice system…NORML is here!

      Again – only in music city would he be targeted. Why don’t they ever arrest the country music genre artists? Argh! Enough already, can’t even begin to understand this. Wonder how if the cop got his autograph at the same time.

      I was arrested for cannabis in December 2011.. just passing through. Nashville does not participate in our love of cannabis.

      I read the story last night from The Tennessean and my take on it is that he is lucky he got a citation instead of being arrested. People are arrested for a lot less than that.

      Just another case of our freedom to enjoy a natural harmless plant impeded apon by a ignorant government.

      I think Willy Nelson can speak on behalf of the country stars being arrested for smoking pot.

      The last time I know of Wiz getting busted was back in 2010 for possession. HE SMOKES ALL THE TIME. SO WHY HASN’T HE BEEN BUSTED BETWEEN THEN AND NOW? Of course Nashville cops were targeting him. Everywhere he goes people know he smokes. It’s just the people who want to be d***s that give him trouble.
