Wiz Khalifa -- who famously raps about rolling joints "bigger than King Kong’s fingers" -- was busted for weed AGAIN last night ... the 2nd time in 10 days.

The Winston-Salem Police Department in North Carolina tells us ... the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana before his concert in Winston-Salem last night. 

We're told officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus.

Wiz was cited and released -- and is required to appear in court at a later date.

As we previously reported, Wiz was caught with weed in Nashville on April 21 ... after cops received complaints about marijuana smoke at a local Holiday Inn.

Cops say Wiz and his people were blazing up on the tour buses BEFORE the concert. A court date has been set for July 27th.

i know a guy that got pulled over and caught with 1 joint in his car.. he got arrested and got out of jail the next morning.. went to court a few weeks later and the judge gave GUILTY with time served.. he thought it was all over.. then a few weeks later he got a letter from the DMV saying his DL was suspended for 90 days and he would have to take a drug/drunk driving class which cost 500$ and have to pay over 100$ to get his license reinstated .. BUT THIS GUY GETS FnCKING CITED AND RELEASED..!!

Think of all the lawyers that would be out of work if it weren't for fools like this. The rappers are saving the economy from total collapse. We should salute them for peddling the smut and violence. They are true American heroes.

Don't feed the Trolls    

Legalize it ! As long as this product that is NOT worse than cigarettes is illegal, Cops will continue to profit from wrongfully ticketing & arresting innocent people for smoking something that grows out of the ground.

Even though I don't agree, Weed is illegal. Wiz Khalifa is too open about it on camera. He said himself he smokes it all day, and you can smell it on him If a cop is bored they could easily go to his concert whenever he is in town and can easily makes it a bust.

Who cares, his music not to mention 95% of all rap and hiphop today is pure garbage. I hope they lock him up for a few years so my ears won't be polluted with that noise that he calls music

I vote financially penalize his azz and all others with illegal weed to the highest. These little fines are useless. Start at the minimum of a few grand for ANY possession. They don't care about the law but they do care about their wallets!

Maybe if he stopped wearing a knit cap (the official hat of heavy pot users everywhere) and dark glasses all the time maybe he wouldn't look so obviously like a pothead and would be less likely to get arrested.
