Lil Wayne Receives Trial Date in AZ Drug Case

Lil Wayne is headed to court. Two years after being arrested in Arizona on drug and gun charges, the rap superstar will finally be going to trial for the case.

The Yuma Sun reports that Weezy’s trial has been set by presiding judge, Mark Wayne Reeces, for March 30, 2010. It will most likely last between two and three weeks.

The New Orleans MC has officially been charged with one count each of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia. He has plead not guilty on all counts.

As previously reported, the Young Money rapper was busted on January 22, 2008 with nearly four ounces of marijuana, about an ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstasy and a .40 caliber handgun, after DEA agents searched his tour bus at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint, near Dateland, Arizona.

    I doubt it if he get more than a couple months. Which would be messed up considering they gave boosie 2yrs off a fuckin pistol and weed charge
