Few rappers have been as transparent about their penchant for cannabis consumption as Wiz Khalifa (sample lyric: “So what we smoke weed? So what we get high?”), but it looks like that may be catching up with him: The rapper, born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, was cited in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for marijuana possession on Tuesday night — just a week after being cited in Nashville, Tennessee for the exact same charge. That, Wiz, is what we call a geographic.

UFC fighter Ross Pearson — who was crowned winner of Ultimate Fighter 9 — was stopped in Las Vegas after police spotted his car swerving on the road. According to law enforcement, Pearson failed the test “miserably” and was arrested under suspicion of DUI. Looks like there’s some things you can’t fight.

Adriana Lima is known for many things, most notably her impossibly flawless beauty and thick Brazilian accent — but an insatiable craving for alcohol now that she’s pregnant? She told People, “I’ve been craving beer…It’s very strange because I normally don’t like beer. Now I want some but I cannot drink it. It’s been very hard!” Whatever happened to pickles and anchovies?

Legendary triple threat Olivia Newton-John has gone totally green, focusing her energies on healthy living — but while her daughter Chloe Lattanzi continues to struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues, Newton-John denies taking drugs ever. Her recent role as a hard-partying aging mother in the new film A Few Best Men had her claiming that she’s never done drugs, and only occasionally “cheats” on her clean diet with a little champagne or meat.
