Charges Against Wiz Khalifa Dropped

Does anyone remember when Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession way back in November?

Well, Young Khalifa is officially off the hook, as those charges have been dropped.

According to The Daily Reflector:

Drug charges were dropped against a rapper who performed at East Carolina University because the charges were in error at the time of his arrest, the district attorney said Wednesday.

District Attorney Clark Everett determined that the amount of marijuana seized on the bus did not exceed the 10-pound threshold for a trafficking charge.

All charges against the rapper and six others with him were dismissed when three of the men admitted the marijuana was theirs and pleaded guilty during an Aug. 11 hearing to misdemeanor possession, Everett said. Each of the three paid a $1,000 fine and court costs.

“The magistrate or someone at that office must have misread the statute. We discovered the error maybe two hours after Thomaz paid the bondsman’s premium and left. Because of that, it was a high price he paid for bringing the drug onto the campus. Had he remained to discover the error, he would not have been bonded so high, probably $1,000,” Everett said.

In layman’s terms, someone made a mistake and Wiz Khalifa is good to go.

We imagine Wiz is somewhere smoking a blunt right now.
