Rewind to Halloween 2012 and you may remember a certain rapper in the press getting arrested for on a variety of charges he vehemently denied. Long story short, Philly emcee Meek Mill was arrested because cops claimed they smelled weed in his car and he denied them a request to search the vehicle. Meek ultimately got detained by the popo while they forcibly searched his car and came up with nothing (most likely because Meek and his pals smoked it all prior to the arrest).
Yet, the saga doesn't end there. TMZ reports that because of his detention, Mill "claims he lost $22k on the cancelled jet and a $39K appearance fee for the A-Town party he missed. In the docs, he also claims he took a hit in negotiating a $2 million deal with Puma because all the negative pub from the arrest ... forced him to settle for a mere $650K."
In the battle of Meek Mill vs. The City of Brotherly Searches, we're going to have to give this one to Meek. Making a dude miss his flight because you smell a little pot in his car is total profiling. Despite the fact that he's gone down for weapons and drug charges before, we need to stop the use of pot as a conduit for throwing people in prison. No matter what your past is, that ain't right!
