Good God, I can't believe the amount of ignorance here. You people really think pot is a gateway drug? How about you do some research of your own instead of listening to the media or the idiots you hang out with.

I don’t think people in the entertainment industry are expected to be role models anymore. Even the Royals have been caught with their pants down and their tops off.


To be a good role model in today’s society, one would have to be close to perfect (not realistic). At one time, Disney stars were probably expected to be role models. Jamie Lynn Spears appeared to be a good role model until she got pregnant in her teens. Miley Cyrus is another example, and we all know how that situation turned out.


Justin Bieber is a singer, and technically, an adult. He can’t help it if his fan base is under the age of 16, and most people really don't care if he smokes pot.

You could show a clip of Justin singing while smoking a joint and his young fans will still not believe it. This hamster giver-away-er can do no wrong in the eyes of his tween followers!

The most dangerous true gateway drugs are alcohol and the perfectly legal narcotic pain killers. Yet, I never see the chest pumping self-righteous attacking those. Fact, weed is far less harmful to the body and nowhere near as dangerous as alcohol. Drunks speed through stop signs at 80 mph. Potheads just sit there waiting for them to turn green.

Looks like a feeble attempt on the part of TMZ to avenge the unnecessary death of a fellow paparazzi..Justin did not cause this death, pot did not cause this death, yet the hope of a ton of money paid out by companies like TMZ did.
"Los Angeles police said the photographer was seen taking pictures of the traffic stop and was ordered by highway patrol officers to return to his car for safety reasons. He was struck by another motorist while trying to cross four lanes of traffic."

Was the photographer drunk? On drugs? Why didn't he see the car on a very busy road? At the end of the day, the photographer made choices that didn't work out so well..are sites like TMZ going to help pay for the funeral, or just pocket the profit off of the death?

JUSTIN WOULD NEVER SMOKE POT! YOU OBVIOUSLLY DON'T KNOW THAT HIS MOTHER STRUGGLED WITH DRUGS, AND HE HAS TO MUCH RESPECT FOR HIS MOM TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT! HOW CME WHEN HE DONATES MILLIONS TO CHARITY THAT NEVER MAKES THE NEWS, BUT WHEN HE MAKES ONE MISTAKE EVERYONE IS CONVINCED HE'S SATIN!? AND EVEN IF HE DID SMOKE POT, YOU PROBABLY HAVE TOO, SO LET IT GO AND GET OVER YOURSELVES!

It's a gateway drug when it's used by a brain dead teenager that has more money than he knows what to do with. The idea of it being a gateway drug to the average Joe schmo is ridiculous.
But this idiot kid is dumb enough to think a little snort of coke here and there is no big deal either, and it will progress from there.
Hopefully it will be his downfall and we won't have to hear about him much longer.
