Wiz Khalifa was arrested on Nov. 9 in Greenville, N.C., after his concert. Police reportedly seized more than 60 grams of marijuana on his tour bus. Since becoming one of the hottest young rappers in hip-hop, Wiz Khalifa has expressed his affinity for marijuana. During a recent interview with rolling out, the Pittsburgh, Pa., native discussed why he’s honest about his feelings on marijuana.
“It’s just something that comes with the territory,” he says. “My fans are into me for the complete package of reasons that they are into me. You can’t take one or two of those things away and have my fans still love me. The same things that we used to build [our buzz] are going to be the same things that are going to be there as we progress. But I’ve always been pretty open about it. There will be a point where I could chill, but right now I’m over Marijuana Inc. I feel like people make other extracurricular things seem cool and their ways are more dangerous. Marijuana is a universal thing.”
In an upcoming cover story in rolling out, Wiz Khalifa will discuss his rise to fame, the Taylor Gang clothing line, and how his life has changed over the last 12 months. –a.r
