Justin Bieber

Atlanta Move Could Land Him in PRISON

Justin Bieber'
s plan to move to Atlanta may be the worst decision he's made in years -- and that's really saying something -- because it could land him behind bars FOR YEARS.

TMZ broke the story ... Bieber now has his mind set on buying an estate in Atlanta and living there part time. 

Here's the problem ... and it's a big one.  In Georgia, possession of a tiny bit of weed is a misdemeanor that can land you in jail for 1 year.  And, if it's more than an ounce, it becomes a FELONY and the maximum penalty is A DECADE BEHIND BARS.

By contrast ... in California 28.5 grams of pot or less is like a traffic ticket.  And more than 28.5 grams is just a misdemeanor with the max penalty of 6 months in county jail. 

Also in California, you can avoid criminal prosecution altogether by simply getting a medical marijuana card.  There's no such thing in Georgia.

As for sizzurp ... in Georgia even a tiny bit of unprescribed codeine can land you in prison for 15 YEARS.

In California ... a little sizzurp is a felony, but the maximum punishment is 3 years.

Short story ... Justin may be making a colossal mistake.

Really!!! This white bread Canadian POS has a Latin kings tattoo on his scrawny f**king a ss? Oh please, please ,please, let him go to "jail" not lockup jail. Even better, to prison. But I dont see that happening. A real Latin King would use a finger nail clipper to rip it off his chest.

Whitney Houston lived in Atlanta. Her daughter and her fiance aka adopted brother still live there in Whitney's townhouse. Nancy Grace said Justin needs rehab but wants the best for Justin. She still has friends in the courts in Atlanta. Usher lives in Atlanta. Does Scooter live in LA? Justin should live with his mother in her house in Atlanta. He should sell his CA mansion and stay in hotels when he is working in CA. He should save what money he has left as his income is going to keep getting smaller.

It is time to decriminalize marijuana on a federal level. 1) you clear the jails of non violent marijuana combusted inmates. 2) you tax the hell out of it to gain revenue. Legalize it!!!!
