Justin Bieber smoking weed isn't just no big deal, according to former television star Tommy Chong, it's the reason this young singer is rich and famous!

"I knew [Bieber] was smoking before he knew it," Chong joked with TMZ yesterday.

How so?

"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!"

Reactions to the Bieber pot smoking photos have been mixed.

Disgruntled fans are cutting themselves in weird, troubling protest; The Game says Bieber made a mistake and plenty of stars get high.

And THG readers so far believe it's no big deal. Where do YOU stand?

Where do I stand? Well, marijuana is an unquestionably milder, safer and less addictive alternative to alcohol. So I think that Justin Bieber's use of the herb will send kids a good message that they have this very real way of keeping themselves safe when they're socializing and relaxing. Hopefully many of them will see how safe marijuana is and therefore how harmful its prohibition is and will take it upon themselves to pressure our government to legalize marijuana like wine.


Lets just face the truth if it, Bieber has become another white wanna-be American kid. As for his wound self-afflicting followers - I think there is proof that some mental diseases are epidemic and contagious.


yep, you folks see this clear.
