Wiz Khalifa has been cleared of a number of drugs charges levelled at him after he was arrested in East Caroline earlier this year.

The hit rapper, who named his album 'Rolling Papers' and had a huge hit single wuith 'Roll Up', was unsurprisingly found in posession of a large amount of marijuana on his tour bus when stopped by police at the University of East Carolina in

The 'Black and Yellow' rapper was subsequently charged with trafficking marijuana, maintaining a place for sale of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. However, the case was dismissed yesterday (Sept 8) as the weight of drugs found did not surpass the minimum amount to be considered beyond personal use.

"Certainly, he regrets the position in which he found himself in. He had to pay a high price for that, in a lot of ways.

Wiz Khalifa features alongside Lily Allen on T-Pain's new single '5 O'Clock'.
