Snooki Threatens Website Over Bogus Drug Bust Story

Snooki is furious with a website that posted a false story today claiming she was arrested in NJ with a TON of marijuana ... and now she's threatening to sue.

The site reported that Snooks was pulled over on a routine traffic violation ... and during the bust, cops uncovered 12 ounces of the sticky icky. Problem is, Snooki wasn't in Jersey today ... she wasn't even in the tri-state area.

Snooki was not amused ... and now her lawyers have fired off a letter to the site, demanding they remove the story, or she's gonna crush their asses in court.

Snooki's rep tells us, "The report is 100% false. As Ms. Polizzi's legal counsel is currently investigating this matter, we cannot comment any further except to assure the public and Ms. Polizzi's fans that this story is a complete fabrication."

So far, the story is still on the website.

Stay tuned.

6:49 PM: The website has removed the story in question.
