's drug of choice has ruffled the feathers of the company that makes it ... now that TMZ has broken the story that Justin has a serious sizzurp problem.

As we reported ... Justin's sizzurp (aka lean) concoction includes Actavis -- a mixture of promethazine hydrochloride and codeine phosphate syrup.  It's considered the Rolls Royce of lean, which is commonly mixed with soda and a Jolly Rancher.

Our sources say Justin gets his stash of Actavis from out of the country.

A rep for Actavis tells TMZ ... they disavow the use of their product for illegal purposes.  The rep notes their product is used for temporary relief of coughs and upper respiratory symptoms associated with allergies and common colds.

The rep adds, "The company does not condone its use for any indications outside of this purpose."

The rep would not discuss the fact that the product has become a staple for high-end sizzurp users.

Hope the manufacturer covers their ass for when this D-bag overdoes or has organ failure and his D-bag relatives try to sue.

Since the condine company isn't down with his sizzurp consumption, (TMZ's words, not mine), stating that they do not condone the use of the syrup for any use other than colds, etc. It is NOT for just 'high end' users for I assure you that unfortunately, many students in ALL middle, junior & high school have been using it for a few years as it's a CHEAP way to get high!!!! Do your homework/research, TMZ for it is 'not' limited to quote: "high end sizzurp" users.....

This medication works by surpressing your cough. Long term use will eventually lead to chronic lung problems and bacterial pneumonia.

If a Jolly Rancher accompanies your dose you're too young.

Codeine is pretty weak anyways. They prescribe that stuff to kids. just pop a couple vicodins and be done with it. Don't tell him about oxys though.

You guys are retarded, TMZ. Activis is not a combination of promethazine and codeine.. Activis is a company, one of many, that produces that combo. of meds. It is a brand.

This site's getting worse with its stupid headlines. Did Harvey really think the drug company would say "Oh Yes!! We're loving the fact that our medication has become the ghetto version of Meth! We are praying that pop superstar Justin Beiber can do for our medicine what Adam Levine is doing for Acne medicine ProActive. We want kids everywhere to drink dangerous amounts of our codeine cough syrup until they die!!" ? What else would they say besides "don't misuse medicine and abuse it"? This site absolutely loves it when celebrities are killed but what really gets Harvey's limp prick hard is when they overdose on drugs. TMZ celebrated when Amy Whinehouse died. That's a fact. There was a party, look it up. There's a special place in hell for that creep.

@Barb, Even if that were true, what does that have to do with the fact that a teenager is dead? He isn't here to defend himself, or to explain what happened. Stop being such an insensitive douchebag, or karma will slap you like the b!tch that you are very soon. Rolypoly Georgie is a wannabe tough guy who can't hold his own without using a gun, and he is obviously as pathetic as you. I normally would have no problem with the guy owning or carrying a gun. However, I do not believe he should have been allowed to get away with using a gun in situation he created simply because he was not man enough to handle what he started! It's time for the man challenged little b!tch to sack up and stop pretending he is a tough guy who stands his ground. If he had to stand that ground, without a weapon, and face a man he would cry like a little b!tch while trying to run away. You can write to him while he is getting all of his spokes broken by another inmate when he eventually ends up in prison, because that is how his story will end.

Sad that if he is doing something like that he will have liver damage just like Trayvon had from having that type of habit. I guess even money and fame doesn't make him happy enough. I wonder what his gramps thinks about him or his mom or has money gone to their head too. I feel sorry for the kid, I hope he grows up before it's too late.
