Wiz Khalifa makes no secret of his penchant for marijuana, but after a recent bust by the police, the Kush & Orange Juice rapper might be a little more careful about his smoking habits.

Wiz got busted at hotel in Nashville over the weekend when cops responded to a complaint about the strong smell of marijuana emanating from his room, TMZ reports. When the police showed up, the Taylor Gang leader threw his joint out the window, but the cops were able to recover it. Wiz eventually admitted the marijuana was his.

The officers let him off with a citation for possession of 3.7 grams of marijuana.

Wiz has also been in the news recently because of Kanye West's unexpected reference to him on his recent song "Way Too Cold." Although the Pittsburgh rapper had been asked about Mr. West in numerous interviews even before the song was released, the track only stirred up more interest in the supposed triangle given that Wiz is now engaged to Kanye’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. Wiz recently told Sway of MTV’s RapFix that he doesn't let those questions get under his skin.

"It doesn't really bother me because it's something that people are gonna always be interested in," he said. "It's something that if I try to fight it then somebody is gonna do it to try to annoy me and then what am I gonna do then? So I just accept it for what it is and keep it pushing man. I got a whole positive campaign and it's all love."

 

The hip hop stoner can be assured the question will persist as he gears up to release his sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C., in August.
