Lil' Fizz sued for marijuana

Lil Fizz, the rapping member of mid 2000s boy band B2K, is potentially on the hook for over $1 million, thanks to a punitive lawsuit from the State of California. Fizz, born Dreux Pierre Frederic, is accused of co-owning and operating an illegal marijuana dispensary in West Hollywood, California, TMZ reports.

The feds busted the ganja grocery, cheekily named "Little Amsterdam," for operating in an area of California that expressly forbids such storefronts. If the business had been located in certain other parts of California, it would have been perfectly legal.

As an alleged co-owner of the dispensary, Lil Fizz is being called upon to shut down Little Amsterdam immediately, and then pay a fine of $2,500 for every day it's been open. Since the shop opened in July of last year, that totals a whopping $1,192,500.

In addition to the fines, prosecutors are reportedly trying to get the B2K singer to recoup law enforcement costs and attorney's fees racked up in the case — potentially another $750,000.
