Justin Bieber
's private jet touched down outside NYC for the Super Bowl -- and authorities immediately held him for questioning ... because of a strong odor of pot coming from his plane ... TMZ has learned.

We're told ... the plane was stopped after it arrived at Teterboro airport in New Jersey.  As we told you ... Justin, his dad and some friends were traveling there for Super Bowl parties.

Sources tell us law enforcement is holding the plane ... because they think there may be marijuana on board.  We're told the plane and the passengers are currently being searched ... but so far no pot has been found.

A source close to Bieber tells us, the passengers knew they'd be searched ... since they were flying into the U.S. from Canada.

Story developing ...

ban him from the USA or either give him some time in prison before something really bad happens and it could have been stopped.

The pilot was covering his own ass because he knew the plane was going to get searched.

I don't agree with Justin's behaviour BUT what about the HYPOCRITE airlines?
Why do they serve alcohol on flights with young kids sitting next to drunks? FREE alcohol on some flights? HYPOCRITE government doesn't ban alcohol on planes! They still ALLOW smoking on "Chartered" flights not to upset the rich passengers! Why not BAN smoking?
So Justin is actually being "TRAPPED" by a corrupt system

FOOTBALLERS - after the game - they drink like fish regardless of age, they drunk drive, they get on "Chartered" flights where they drink more, smoke, drugs & sometimes rape the airline hostess but they too scared to complain - only Justin cops it sweet from the media!
