Justin Bieber is once again in the news for drugs.

But he has not been snapped smoking pot again.

In a Tweet yesterday, the 19-year old singer expressed support for Russell Simmons, who has penned a letter to President Obama in which he urged to Commander-in-Chief for “more creative criminal justice reform.”

Simmons believes the “enforcement-only” War on Drugs has been a failure and wants the administration to continue with “efforts to revamp the policies of the last 30 years that have seen the prison population skyrocket.”

“shoutout to @UncleRUSH . gotta support him to #EndTheWarOnDrugs and show that we the youth have a voice. hashtag and support the cause.”
