For the second time in less than two weeks, Wiz Khalifa has been popped by the police for weed possession.


According to TMZ, North Carolina police discovered 11.39 grams of marijuana on the rapper’s tour bus after he played a concert in Winston-Salem last night. The amount of the illegal substance was enough to get the hip hop stoner a citation, but he was not detained. Khalifa will be expected to appear in court at a later date.


This is not the first time Khalifa has had a run-in with the law in North Carolina. He was arrested and charged with “trafficking in marijuana” in 2010 when cops found a stash of weed on his tour bus after a show in Greenville, NC.


As previously reported, the “Black & Yellow” rapper was recently issued a ticket in Nashville, TN on April 21 after he was caught with 3.7 grams of weed. During that incident, the Taylor Gang leader admitted to possession after police responded to a complaint about a strong smell of marijuana emanating from his room at a Holiday Inn hotel.
