Wiz Khalifa was reportedly arrested on a series of felony marijuana charges this morning (November 9) during a stop in Greenville, N.C. last night as part of his Waken Baken tour.
According to MTV News, the 2010 XXL Freshman was brought in around 1:30 a.m. and charged with marijuana trafficking, maintaining a place for sale or storage of marijuana and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Shortly after 8 a.m. Wiz was released on $300,000 bail. As of press time nine people in his entourage are still being held on the same charges.
