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.

THE DIALOGUE BOX    

Lil' Wayne is extremely immature. From his personal life and the carelessness of impregnating 3 different women within a four month period; to the stupidity he displays while touring. He is an example of what not to do if given the opportunities he seems to be taking for granted. For other topics of interest visit me at: dialoguebox720.blogspot.com

what??????    

This pisses me off. As an old woman who does not not has ever smoked pot, because of this bust I am now joining in the quest to legalize it.

Based on everything I've read, Lil Wayne is a great person and if this is the only way they can get to him, they will. Someone tried to do this same bs to John Lennon 40 years ago; I cannot believe it's still going on!

ha ha ! How funny is that? The border control let Mexicans cross the border @ 100,000 A day to work 5$ an hour an a burrito and the black dude gets stop! But they have been blocking Haitians for years and no one ,even that half breed president complained. They obviously thought this retard rapper was Haitian and was going to show him the way out!! Only Mexicans n%%ger boy!!!

But it's no surprise! These orders straight from our homeland security department. "turn away black people ,Asians*(why so many are in Vancouver Canada instead), any eastern European but.........

1.you can let in: Mexicans who are consider the losers in their own country of Mexico with no skills that will help America,unwilling to learn the language and american culture ,. trash America and received government welfare for the 50 kids they all birth per house hold and are willing to work for 5 $ an hour (4$ more than they made in Mexico).

2. you can let in al-Qaeda and Muslim extremist per home land security too!!!

Every body else -especially blacks-turn away immediately!

who freaking cares? I'm sorry but the people on here that right judgemental stupid comments really need to do something more productive. I feel bad that you guys live your lifes being so negative and mean, people smoke pot all the time it isnt some major breaking story I mean maybe if they found a dead person on his bus then okay but I mean people smoke pot not everyone but some people and I think its fine I dont get the big deal besides that its illegal but tons of people do that. And people do harder drugs too and its not like they go to jail I know people that are addicted to heroin those people need help but not people that smoke pot in my opinion.

So what this little piss ant got caught. This check point stops a lot of drugs coming from Mexico, Is he something so special that he should be given a free pass, oh heck no. There is a reason there are check points set up around the Mexican boarder among all the states bordering Mexico, not just Texas.
