Weed wonderkid and always-ashing ambassador Wiz Khalifa may have overstepped his bounds and had a bit of a weed whoopsie at the Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet last night.

According to this post on his Instagram page, Wiz had a bit of a run-in with the LVPD over a lit blunt at the high-profile Red Carpet event before the show.

The way the multi-platinum selling recording artist responded indicates not only his intelligence, but also his commitment to shining a positive light on marijuana. There’s a bud pun in there somewhere, but I’ll light it up…I mean, let it go.

Anyone subscribed to Wiz Khalifa’s Instagram account knows he has an intimate relationship with reefer. It’s a close race between blazing blunts and his son for most ‘Grammed on the rapper’s account. And that’s exactly the point.

Wiz, whether he realizes it or not, is showing through his nearly hourly pics to Instagram that you can blaze a bunch of blunts and still be a responsible family man and successful provider for a family. He’s also showing that blunts and beats still share a symbiotic relationship only bested by that of peanut butter and jelly.

Furthermore, when focusing solely on the Instagram post from the Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet, Wiz takes shining a positive light on marijuana consumption another step further.

“Could you put the weed out sir”? Yes of course.

Those three little words that say so much more: ‘Yes of course’.

Wiz may be the hottest rapper in the game right now, and we wouldn’t really blame him if he let that go to his head a little. Not Kahlifa. Instead, he’s respectful of the LVPD’s order and puts out his blunt. Take note young tokers, if you’re respectful of the law, they’ll prob let you get away with a lot more in the long run.

The docile interaction also suggests the LVPD has a laid back stance on marijuana consumption. The cop could easily have taken Wiz downtown for the discretion, but instead let him prove his worth as a man of his word and simply asked him to extinguish the ganja.

Well done on both parties, Wiz for shining a positive light on proper pot partaking and the cop for…how do you say…being a chill dude. The nation’s negative feeling towards marijuana has all but dissipated completely, and this interaction on Wiz Khalifa’s Instagram encapsulates that perfectly.
