Lil' Wayne Incident

12/18/2009 8:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil' Wayne was rollin' through Texas with marijuana on multiple tour buses, this according to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Border Patrol agents tell TMZ a random search of the vehicles (pictured above) uncovered a pot stash on two buses -- but we're told no drugs were found on Wayne's person ... or anyone else in the entourage.

Officials tell us a drug-sniffing K-9 unit picked up the scent outside the bus. Agents then walked the dogs onto the bus, where they located the weed.

As we first reported, Wayne and 11 members of his entourage are being detained at an internal B.P. checkpoint in southern Texas.

So far, no arrests have been made.

UPDATE 8:39 PM ET -- We're told Lil' Wayne's concert tonight at the Laredo Entertainment Center in Laredo, TX. has been postponed. The general manager of the venue tells us they decided to cancel the show because Lil' Wayne didn't show and they couldn't get in touch with him or his people.

Some weed on Lil' Waynes tour busses? No! I can't fathom the idea! It must be a setup! I wonder how much weed there was and if it was actually confiscated.

Guaranteed it was over a few oz's, which would lead to anyone who isn't high-profile being arrested and charged with a felony.

For as much as I personally think Lil Wayne is a talentless turd who deserves prosecuting for his crimes against culture and music, weed is not a crime.

Legalize it.

This is the exact same thing that happened to him leaving a concert in New York, Weed is not that bad for them to be detaining him. WTF Free Lil Wayne

What a waste of taxpayer money. Alcohol is far more dangerous. Legalize it and tax it.

If they were drunk and belligerent they would get a slap on the wrist.

How retarded is our system.

Legalize it and tax it.

The fact that our .gov is still pulling the covers over our eyes on this issue is amazing and speaks wonders.

SUPPORT NORML!

How is it that Lil Wayne gets popped for weed possession like every other week but Snoop could smoke a bong in DEA headquarters and never seems to get arrested? I mean, he's making weed jokes with Martha Stewart for f*** sake! Wayne needs to hire Snoop's entourage and bus drivers.

I'm fairly certain you can find weed and other drugs in about 90% of all tours running.

It's all part of "Operation Weezy F Baby". He's doing good to that area of Texas, which is very close to mexico. Check out the video.
