Lil Wayne tried to light up, and was immediately brought down.
The Young Money boss was kicked off a chartered jet after he and his entourage smoked weed against the wishes of the captain and crew, reports TMZ. Before takeoff in Ft. Lauderdale, Wayne asked if he could smoke weed on the flight—the captain answered that he certainly could not.
But that wasn’t going to stop a stoner as legendary as Lil Wayne, of course—he lit up, and after 17 minutes of flight time the captain immediately turned the plane around, landed back where he took off, and sent Weezy out the door.
Wayne was reportedly also drinking codeine aka sizzurp during the flight. Photos show Wayne holding a Styrofoam cup while exiting the plane. He has suffered from seizures on private jets in the past, which may have been triggered by cough syrup.
