New Orleans  city prosecutor Jason Cantrell was forced to resign this week after a reefer fell out of his pocket … in court…while he was speaking to a police officer! Awkward.

Eyewitnesses said it was quite comical watching the officer glance down at the joint, then at another officer, before chuckling and leading Cantrell out of the courtroom to write him up.

Easiest. Drug bust. Ever.

Cantrell was cited and let go, but later stepped down from his city post.
