On Wednesday night, Wiz Khalifa was invited by the Pittsburgh Pirates to throw the first pitch. Then, by Thursday morning, MLB was reprimanding the team.

Strike one

It seems the league is pretty unhappy with the Pirates and Khalifa after the rapper showed up on the mount with a shirt emblazoned with “LEGALIZE IT” across the front in green letters. Of course, those in the know what the “it” is referring to. But, just to make sure there was no confusion, Wiz mimed smoking a joint before throwing out the first pitch.

The next morning, MLB issued a statement to a writer at Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which was short and sweet:

Marijuana is probated substance in all of our drug programs. It’s unfortunate this situation occurred. The Pirates have informed us that this should not have happened.

Also, that’s the statement, verbatim. But it’s safe to assume MLB meant “prohibited” and not “probated.” Just what the Pirates or MLB expected from Wiz is the real question, as he is definitely a cannasseur, whose music reflects his love of your favorite herb.
