Lil Wayne has been snapped in multiple pictures with his omnipresent Styrofoam cup, the ingredients, of course, include a mixture of codeine.
But on Monday in New York, the rapper’s assistant put his boss’s pot usage on blast in a court room. According to TMZ, the hearing was in regards to a weapons case. Wayne was busted last year after his performance at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan. (Ja Rule was also arrested on separate charges the same night after appearing on stage with Wayne.)
The Cash Money star’s assistant, Terry Bourgeois, explained to the judge that marijuana is “something we always have” on Lil Wayne’s tour bus. He went on to reveal the rapper only smokes “dro” and then explained what the name is short for, ie “hydroponically grown” pot. Weezy, all the while, sat with his head in his hands as his assistant dished the news, TMZ reports.
Bourgeois, however, testified she did not see Wayne with a gun on the night in question. According to the Associated Press, Weezy’s legal rep Stacey Richman wants the case dismissed. Richman claims police falsely stated they smelled marijuana in order to board the bus with just cause.
