Justin Bieber ‘Trying to be Better’ Following Pot-Smoking Allegations

Justin Bieber said he is “trying to be better” after photos were published that appear to show the 18-year-old singer smoking cannabis.

On Friday, TMZ posted images that show Bieber at a party, holding what might be a hand-rolled joint. Sources claimed that Bieber’s friend, the rapper Lil Twist, was “smoking everyone up” in the Newport Beach hotel room. Other guests are clearly drinking beer; Bieber is not yet of drinking age in California.

While many of Bieber’s fans dismissed the allegations, others expressed shock and sorrow. “Bieber, what are you doing? drugs? Please, stop it!” wrote one fan. Another Belieber beseeched the universe for answers: “Justin Bieber sigh why why why why did u do drugs.”

Bieber’s only comments have been demure, opaque and actually a little chastened. “everyday growing and learning,” he tweeted. “like i said … 2013 … new challenges. new doubters … u get knocked down, u get up … i see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down.”

“I’m not going to … go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol,” Bieber told V magazine last year. “I want to become the best at what I do. I want to be better than anybody who’s ever done it. And in order to do that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can.”

    Smoking is a bad habit and i don’t like this. Overall a number of new generation adopt this habit. I request you don’t do smoking.

    It is just the same as if he was caught with alcohol, having sex or anything else that teenagers should not do but probably will. Whoever got this photo must have known that there was more sensationalist value in marijuana than any other kind of indiscretion – in fact it is probably quite good PR for him with his fan base. Just shows how the prohibition laws have the opposite effect of what we are always told – they glamorise marijuana use and make those who get caught look like rebels and outlaws. Some one like Paul McCartney getting caught for cannabis probably raised awareness more than anything else – if he had been left alone no one would have known and millions may never have tried it !

    YES let the dude unwinde with a little Ganja.
    …But don’t deny the truth that Ganja is a drug (or ‘drugs’ for those of you with a plurality problem) and a (an?) herb:

    Cannabis herb is to THC (and the other phytocannabinoids),
    as opium is to morphine
    as coca leaf is to cocaine

    ‘crude’ herbs and derivatives may be less effective (and addictive) than their derived pure active ingredients, but they’re still just less effective and addictive!!!

    Gimme hash oil or coke over cannabis or coca leaf anyday…

    But don’t forget that the solvent waste product derived from an oxygen starved fungus that everybody loves (Ethyl alcohol) is a drug too!!!

    …and a beer to go with that too bartender.

    Legalize it.
