"Could you put the weed out sir"? Yes of course.

cThe awards were held in Las Vegas, where pot is legal for medicinal purposes, so Wiz thought he would be straight showing up to the star-studded event high before snapping a few pics and touching the stage to perform his tribute to Paul Walker, "See You Again." Unfortunately for Wiz, the LVPD wasn't cool with the rapper lighting up on the premises and threatened to take him on a ride downtown if he continued to smoke.

Photographer Jeff Kravitz captured the moment and took to his Facebook page to explain what happened. "Wiz Khalifa smoked weed on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet blazing some AK-47," wrote Kravitz. A police officer told him to keep that shit off his carpet or he'd have to arrest him. It might be legal for medical in Vegas, but the cops don't have the tolerance they do in LA."

Khalifa's performance went off without a hitch and the rapper alluded to his interaction with the LVPD on his Instagram page.
