    LOL at the law, did you know we have the right to property in this country? go read the bill of rights, he didnt do anything illegal….well maybe illegal but if a law is unconstitutional then the law is null and void

    please read the 10th amendment

    Man wiz is the man hes not some braggadociouse douche like most artist and hes not some emo wimp.

  • JSWAGG

    this shit was crazy……arrested him and all of taylor gang…I WAS THERE!!! Heres a new little piece of info yall dont know yet, he allowed them to search the bus they didnt even have a warrant how stupid!!!

  • Kamari

    Point blank, non violent drug users shouldn’t be arrested. It’s a victimless crime. Yet this corrupt ass country will let us drink liquor and destroy our bodies (not to knock liquor), but it’s just the principle. Everything in this country is so ass backwards.

  • ECU student

    its Greenville, NC and F*CK the Greenville PD…I just went to his concert and Wiz KILLED that shit. Greenville cops are dicks and are out to get EVERYONE…..ECU loves Wiz…he did amazing tonight.

    Hope dude doesn’t have to go to jail, seems like a good dude, just caught up that’s all. Hate seeing this rap stereotype reflecting the culture. I don’t wanna see no more rappers, or ppl go to jail period man. Stay up Wiz, just make the right choices man

  • @Mr_Spacely2

    I dont kno wut imma do now. I guess i mite ride up dere and shoot every cop till i find the one wit the keys to let him loose. Then we gon smoke a joint a ride on to the nxt concert ya dig

  • Nah Kid

    Thats crazy, if he rapped about getting drunk he’d be all right. It pisses me off that a guy can get drunk go driving and kill someone or get drunk and beat the shit out of his wife, but if you smoke buds and get the muchies the cops are after you.

  • http://twitter.com/DeynDash @DeynDash

  • Rachel

    Considering all the violent crime around campus lately (3 people shot last weekend alone), you would think the Greenville PD would have something a little better to do than arrest someone for committing a victimless crime who also was providing a service to Greenville.

    Wiz is an intelligent artist but was not smart enough not to type that bullshit on his twitter like the cops wasn’t looking out for that. still its only a mistermeaner but it turns into a pain in the neck just to handle such petty bullshit.

    Wiz was tellin everyone through out the concert to smoke and told them with about 50 cops around that he was gonna go smoke up in his tour bus after the concert. He does that everywhere. He was in Wilmington, NC last year smokin in the crowd before he even performed. How do I know? I was there, he passed me his blunt!

    Legalize it & alcohol kills and ruins lives while marijuana heals n saves lives thats why i say fuck the goverment & fuck the police fuckin cock suckers Legalize it Dont criticize it

    Weed is a gateway drug. One minute you are puffing herb, the next you are smoking pcp mixed with angel dust and shooting up blind nuns at church. You crackers better recognize. Drug Free since ’83.

  • Chan

    300k for WEED? FUCK OUT OF HERE COPS. thats complete bull shit

  • paco301

    i’m all for the chilling and taking off with the jets but my man has to be more smart ab it. @toad3527 Yea you have the right of property..however if you give the law reason to belive in other words..probable cause , they can raid you shit, specially if he let em. The fact that he did let em search it says a lot ab Wiz, hes a stand up dude and took the blame for it, im sure he knows the law too hes been around and has gotten in troube with weed before if im not mistaken, its on @respect magazine(august) and @ xxl(june/july) you oughta read the articles. If he gave in its bc he wanted to make a statment and not bc “he wasnt sure he was gonna get caught or not”. If anything tho, best of luck to him and the gang, hes a sick performer an I guess now we can all say a real ass person, other lil wack ass rapper would have blame it on some one else..

  • paco301

    @ yo dude. Dont let your personal experiences create a generalized opinion ab weed. I have a frnd tht cnt smoke unless he is laying down with his legs up agains the wall so tht all the blood dsnt jst leave his brain and passes out( which has happened before, while he was driving back in HS) Weed is a simple herb that everyone reacts diff to, just like our parents have a glace of wine or a couple of beers aft work every now and then or on the weekends, weed is this generations stress relief, may not be the healthyest or most productive but it sure wont kill anyone

  • Mr Xclusive

    lock this nigga up this what you get for weed

  • LDF

    Lol @ this nigga fro

  • http://youngshay112.wordpress.com Shannon

    Why? Why? You’d have less trouble buying weed at the venue than carrying (um, trafficking) the shit from place to place. Or maybe you could just do the socially acceptable thing, get drunk, and stop falling victim to a system you know damn well is out to get you.

  • paco301

    @shannon history shows that at one point not to long ago, gettinf drunk was also part of a system out to get you…and for some serious time. Like I said, weed; bc of its medicinal purposes and natural enhancements will eventually become legal, Wiz is a mere example of the lifestyle he decides to live by. He really talks it how he lives it. He is part of this movement. And by all means dnt assume I condone the use of drugs is just a mere opinion backed up by facts. Weed like ever other “natural” drug will eventually become legal at some level and people will profit frm it. Wiz just allowed this to happen bc he knew his actions will account for much more than the 300k bail out money he lost…just I magine how many more ppl will like him or at least fuck with his music bc of this, bc he didnt bitch out.
