The Game

Writing off medical marijuana is totally legit ... so claims The Game -- problem is he's wrong ... and the IRS says its AGAINST THE LAW!

Game was at the Nokia Theater Saturday night in L.A. when he schooled our photog about writing off medical sticky icky.

Here's the rub ... according to the IRS, "You cannot include in medical expenses amounts you pay for controlled substances (such as marijuana, laetrile, etc.). Such substances may be legalized by state law. However, they are in violation of federal law and cannot be included in medical expenses." 

Game needs a little H&R Block.

Another fool who will make news again when he files for bankruptcy that will include a massive tax liability. Get someone besides a relative or buddy to do your taxes!

It is also fraud to get a prescription for a fake medical condition just so you can get a hold of pills or pot.

I assume he doesn't do his own taxes so he shouldn't have to worry when the IRS comes to audit him because of his statement being published on TMZ. Surely his accountant knows what he/she is doing.
