If there was one thing Wiz Khalifa would change about 2010 if he could, it would be his arrest in Greenville, North Carolina. During the fall of 2010, Wiz Khalifa had a performance at East Carolina University. The Pittsburgh rapper’s tour bus was searched and marijuana was found, leading to Wiz Khalifa’s arrest.

Nearly a year later, Wiz Khalifa has beaten the drug trafficking charges. It was revealed Wiz Khalifa only had two ounces of marijuana on him. In order to be charged for trafficking, there has to be at least 10 ounces of marijuana. Because of this technicality, the “Black & Yellow” rapper remains free.

Wiz Khalifa was with ten other people on the bus, when they were stopped. While Wiz Khalifa and six others got off, free of any and all charges, there were three who did not. Three pleaded guilty to the marijuana charge and have paid $1,000 in court costs.
