Kurtis Blow is denying reports that he was arrested Thursday for possession of marijuana.

TMZ reported yesterday that the rapper was busted at LAX after a TSA body scan determined he had marijuana in his pocket.

Authorities report that since it was under an ounce, he was given a ticket and allowed to proceed through security screenings.

Now Blow is taking to his Twitter page to clear speculation about the incident and assure fans that he was not arrested.

Speaking on his airport episode, he tweeted:

What is this I hear bout me being busted for weed at the airport? Not true. Isn’t weed legal in California? Tmz is bugging.”

Governor Schwarzenegger previously signed a law that would make possession of less than an ounce of marijuana an infraction subject to a maximum of a $100 fine.
