    Call it a bad case of déjà vu for Wiz Khalifa.

    The Rolling Papers rapper has been busted for the second time in less than two weeks for possession of marijuana.

    Authorities in Winston-Salem, N.C., confirm to E! News that the 24-year-old Khalifa, real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz, was ticketed and released following his concert there last night.

    According to local reports, officers searched the hip-hopster's tour bus before the show at Joel Coliseum Annex and turned up an unspecified amount of ganja.

    "These charges stemmed from marijuana use occuring on the tour buses prior to the concert," said the Winston-Salem Police Department in a statement.

    A court date has been scheduled for July 27.

    A rep for the Khalifa declined to comment on the matter.

    It seems Wiz's love for weed might be detracting from his burgeoning music career, especially after Khalifa was collared last Thursday on pot possession charges at a Nashville hotel.

    That happened after residents complained of a powerful odor wafting through the halls and cops subsequently found a stash of the green stuff in his room.

    A hearing in that case is set for May 14.
