A drug trafficking charge brought against rapper Wiz Khalifa last year (10) has been dropped.
The Black and Yellow hitmaker, real name Cameron Thomaz, and nine others were arrested by police at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina in November (10) after a stash of marijuana was found during a search of his tour bus.
He was hit with felony counts of drug trafficking and maintaining a dwelling/place for the sale of a controlled substance, as well as a misdemeanour offence of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was freed on $300,000 (£187,500) bail.
But Khalifa will face no further action over the charges after District Attorney Clark Everett declared the amount of marijuana found during the investigation was far less than the 10-pound (4.5 kilogram) threshold for the charge.
The rapper's entourage was found with just two ounces (56.7 grams) of the drug.
Three of those arrested took responsibility for the illegal substance and were ordered to pay $1,000 (£625) in fines and court costs after pleading guilty to marijuana possession.
The remaining seven, including Khalifa, had their counts dismissed.
