Wiz Khalifa will not serve time for his 2014 marijuana possession charge.

Last May, Wiz Khalifa had a run-in with the police that went viral pretty quickly. The reason for the arrest (marijuana possession) was nothing noteworthy for the Kush & OJ rapper, but what it spawned (a selfie taken behind bars) set the internet ablaze and prompted a separate police investigation. Today, the case has been resolved, and Wiz is getting off with a misdemeanor charge and a $500 fine.

TMZ reports that Young Khalifa pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia after originally being found with half a gram of marijuana in the El Paso airport. He was jailed overnight, but got out the next day and promptly released his 28 Grams tape (what timing). No charges pertaining to the infamous selfie were made.
