There are some people who believe that there are no such things as coincidences in life, and when you hear a story like this one you may be more inclined to agree with them. Last week, North Carolina law enforcement found and seized 420 grams of cannabis along with over twenty ounces of the pain killer codeine and the anti-anxiety medication Xanax from hip hop act Migos’ tour bus. A rather interesting number of grams associated with artists that are big proponents of marijuana use and will be a part of Snoop Dogg’s 420 Wellness Retreat this year! After the stop, three men traveling with the group were taken in on drug possession charges, with two of them having to pay fines and one taken into custody. However none of the men that were involved were actual members of the band so the group’s ongoing tour will continue on as scheduled.

According to USA Today, three men were charged in Boone, North Carolina, after police discovered a plethora of drugs inside of the Migos tour bus.
Following one of Migos’ concerts, security officers at the Homes Convocation center smelled a strong odor of cannabis coming from the bus and notified the Boone Police Department. Cops stopped the vehicle on a nearby highway once the rap group left the concert grounds.
Following the search, Jharon Ahmad Murphy, 26, Daryl Irvon McPherson, 25, and 26-year-old Dominic Kevin Spigner were all charged with drug possession.
