Chief Keef Loses Motion To Dismiss Drug Charge

A judge wasn't buying Chief Keef's argument about edibles.

(AllHipHop News) Embattled rapper Chief Keef has been denied a motion to dismiss his drug possession charge stemming from an arrest last year.

The rapper, real name Keith Cozart, was detained in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in June 2017 after he allegedly tried to board a plane with four marijuana cigarettes and edibles in his backpack.

In September 2017, he pleaded not guilty to felony and misdemeanor charges for possessing marijuana, a marijuana edible, and drug paraphernalia.

Keef attempted to have the possession of a controlled substance charge thrown out, arguing the edibles are not considered marijuana under state law because they contained no plant material.

However, a judge denied the request last week.

Cozart's legal battle in South Dakota is the latest in a series of legal spats - the star is also in trouble with the law in Miami, Florida, where he was arrested last year for driving under the influence.
