Justin Bieber smoking weed and drinking alcohol is being looked into by police. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, all the internet gossip sites are spreading photos that show Justin Bieber partying in Newport Beach. These photos purportedly show Justin Bieber holding a “suspicious” cigarette that many claim contains marijuana. Another photo shows Justin Bieber drinking something that likely contains alcohol, and Bieber is still only 18 years old. But until January 8 the Newport Beach Police Department was unaware of these photos showing that Justin Bieber might have broken the law.
Justin Bieber smoking weed is causing a controversy all over the internet. In a photo, said to be taken January 2 at a Newport Beach hotel room party, Bieber is holding what appears to be a marijuana cigarette while sitting close to a couple of empty beer bottles. Another photo shows Justin Bieber consuming alcohol by sharing a bubbly drink with his pal Lil Twist. Justin Bieber is still only 18 so technically he’s breaking the law.
Newport Beach Police Department officials said that until Tuesday night they were unaware of the photos and had not been aware of the controversy until The Los Angeles Times contacted them about the issue. Sgt. Mike James of the NBPD didn’t say whether the police department was planning to investigate, although one might assume if they are going to do so they wouldn’t announce it to the world, warning Justin Bieber in advance.
Some people have defended Justin Bieber smoking weed. In fact, Tommy Chong says smoking a blunt would improve the Bieb’s art:
“I knew [Bieber] was smoking before he knew it. Because of his music. Because of his dancing. The guy is a phenom … It’s not just his looks. It’s his talent. And you don’t get talent like that by drinking alcohol. The herb, man! The herb!”
Justin Bieber smoking weed has upset many of the pop star’s fans. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a Twitter campaign using the hash tag #CutForBieber features dozens of photos from young girls who claim to have cut their wrists and forearms over Bieber’s drug use.
