Wiz Khalifa has been arrested on drug possession.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa was taken into custody after performing at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.
The popular Pittsburgh rapper, known for his hit single “Black and Yellow,” has boasted about smoking about $10,000 in weed per month.
Many sources have indicated that Khalifa’s bus was raided where marijuana was found, which put a stop to his night of festivity in Greensville.
A spokesperson for the Pitt County Detention Center confirmed to MTV News on Tuesday morning that Wiz, 22, was booked at around 1:30 a.m., posted $300,000 bail and then released around 8 a.m. ET.
Cannabis(marijuana) use has been assessed by several studies to be correlated with the development of anxiety, psychosis, and depression.A 2007 meta-analysis estimated that cannabis use is statistically associated, in a dose-dependent manner, to an increased risk in the development of psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia.
Though cannabis use has at times been associated with stroke, there is no firmly established link, and potential mechanisms are unknown.Similarly, there is no established relationship between cannabis use and heart disease, including exacerbation of cases of existing heart disease.Though some fMRI studies have shown changes in neurological function in long term heavy cannabis users, no long term behavioral effects after abstinence have been linked to these changes.
In an unrelated news About 30,000 Dutch households are to receive marijuana-scented scratch cards in an effort to uncover illegal urban cannabis plantations.
Authorities in Rotterdam and The Hague say they are distributing the cards to help people recognize what cannabis smells like.
The cards also include a number to call to report suspected marijuana-growing.
Dutch authorities turn a blind eye to citizens growing up to five marijuana plants for personal use.
“Citizens must be alerted to the dangers they face as a result of these plantations, and if they become aware of any suspect situations they must report them,” said the spokesman for government-appointed working group to combat cannabis cultivation in the Netherlands, Arnie Loos.
The green scratch card, measuring 20cm by 10cm (8in by 4in) reads “Assist in combatting cannabis plantations”.
When scratched, the card reveals its scent as well as a police number people can call if they suspect that a neighbour grows marijuana on a large scale.
Over the years, many celebrities have been apprehended for drug possession, and some of them have joined drug rehab programs and have been rehabilitated successfully.
