Date for Lil Wayne Some folks should never get on roller skates. Some should never get on a plane. And maybe Lil Wayne should, like, avoid buses. His trial on felony drug and weapons charges is set for March in Yuma, Ariz. In January 2008, the New Orleans hip-hop popster and MC had his bus searched at a Border Patrol checkpoint east of Yuma. Police doggies allegedly sniffed out a lot of nuh-uh like cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, a pistol, and $22,000 in cash. LW has pleaded not guilty.
