Justin Bieber
 wasn't born with the talent to become an international superstar ... he inhaled it ... in the form of miraculous marijuana smoke -- so says legendary weed icon Tommy Chong.

The "Cheech & Chong" star was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked if he thought more highly of Bieber now that he knows the singer smokes pot -- and Tommy laughed, saying, "Of course!"

He said, "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!"

Can't blame Bieber either -- Tommy says all the celebs are smoking ganja these days ... "Weed is mainstream as can be."

Stupid F^^khead. Kids arent smoking "mellow Yellow" anymore Tommy, it's anywhere between 30-60... times stronger on a brain that matures on boys at about 28 years old.U cannot tell this tragic has never gone over the edge? just pop into any mental health facility genius and check out how many have permanent psychosis. That is for life Tommy not just for show to get some work dumbo. people really need to wise up on dope. Be yrself and stop smoking crap that makes you different to who u really are.
