Cops:

Lil' Wayne

Had a Lot O' Dope!

1/23/2008 4:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0123_lil_wayne_fm_ex_2-1TMZ has learned rapper Lil' Wayne has been hit with some big time charges -- possession of cocaine, possession of ecstasy and possession of drug paraphernalia. Make it rain!

Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, was arrested with two others who have been charged with possession of marijuana. Cops say they found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy pills on his tour bus -- after they stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Police also found $22,000 in cash and a 40-caliber pistol, but Wayne, we're told, does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida. They tell us they're checking to see if that carries over to Arizona.

The judge set his bond at $10,000. He should be released in a lil' while.

Bag him and tag him. He's done. He was caught in Arizona and they don't usually cotton to people who traffic in drugs down there.

Isn't $10k a little low for charges of that magnitude? You'd think with that amount of drugs it would constitute trafficking even though it was probably for personal use.

The craziest part of all is that the drugs were probably for personal use for him and his entourage. Ah the life of celebrities!

I doubt that the amount of drugs would give law enforcement jusitification for saying he was trafficking when he wasn't . Some poor sap on the street, sure, but not a wealthy guy who can hire lawyers to refute those charges.
