"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.

WOW! Is this even newsworthy? A partial joint and a lil baggy of weed...Not even an OUNCE.. I get it's not the politically correct thing to do in a hotel room ... In this day and age with Medical Marijuana licenses being thrown out there right and left to ppl that falsly take advantage of even having a license in the first place. SERIOUSLY, BIG WOOP, he got a citation.. He's not underage or pushing it to school kids on the playground. Must be a slow day for TMZ...

All you people b*tching that its not fair that cops let him off if it was you, you would have been arrested bla bla bla...apparently you don't know that in most cases when cops bust you for possession of weed, it is just a ticket to appear in court...and that is what he got.

It's quite ****ing hilarious how this article ends. I was JUST thinking "This guys does NOT give a damn about a Pot citation." He probably called Snoop, Jay'Z, Alannis and Rihanna and giggled on the phone for hours about it.

T.S.    

To all of the people complaining about the cops letting him off because he is famous.... Marijuana offenses vary by state. It has been decriminalized in many states. Where I live getting caught with Marijuan is similar to getting a parking ticket.
