"Black and Yellow" rapper Wiz Khalifa tried to hide a bag of weed in his room at a Holiday Inn in Nashville ... this according to law enforcement.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Metro Nashville Police responded to Wiz's room on April 21 after someone complained about a strong odor of marijuana.

When officers arrived to the scene, Wiz -- real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz -- allegedly tossed a "marijuana cigarette" out of the window.

Cops say the recovered the item ... saying, "inside the rolling paper was a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana."

According to the report, Wiz eventually admitted the joint was his and said he had 3.7 grams of weed in his pocket.

Wiz -- who's VERY open about his marijuana use -- was hit with a citation ... and probably smoked more weed after the officers left.

Thats all he got was a citation? First their was the possession then the destruction of evidence. Must be nice to be able to break the law with no consequences.

The idea of waging a war on drugs, against a relatively benign plant like marijuana, is one thing. But when it ravages so viciously that completely innocent people are destroyed, to hide corruption amongst government officials, it becomes a plague.

What am I talking about?

This film:

So deep is the corruption, that the Australian media won't report it... won't report cables which prove criminal acts by their own ministers in office (see them for yourelf, in the reports).

Granted, the media there has a closed remit and non-plural ownership, but this speaks for itself. A wall of absolute silence.

The victim is now seriously ill, whilst they basically point the other way. Whilst they smear her deceased father because dead men can't sue. Whilst they cover the truth, and lead a gullible Australian public by the nose.

This must be the clearest example in the world of a 'war' taking a life of its own, with innocent human beings who fall under the wheel, being disregarded by the powerful self-interest forces of government. It sickens me.

Wiz's story isn't nearly as bad as Snoop Dogg's recent backstage weed incident: http://www.omdoubleg.com/music/snoop-dogg-claims-he-got-high-with-tupac-hologram-at-coachella/

I have yet to understand why people decide on stage names like this! Would you like people in the audience shouting "Go Wiz" "Go Wiz" at you?!!!
