A veteran NYPD cop has lost an appeal for his job after claiming he tested positive for marijuana in a hair sample because his wife spiked his meatballs with weed . . . so he would test positive for marijuana so he would lose his job. Anthony Chiofa had been on the force for 22 years when failed a random drug test in 2006, and then claimed that his wife — who smokes the wacky tobaccy for chronic back pain — cooked up some green in his pasta instead of oregano so he would get fired before getting killed on the job.

Sucks for the cop, but it certainly sounds like a delicious plan. Check out a marijuana meatballs recipe and make your own!
