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.

He is a person and he is gonna make mistake maybe a few screw ups now and then but he isn't in this business to get put down and have a spotlight on him 24/7 but yet he does. Justin is only in this for the fans and the music. I bet most of you have done weed or some type of illegal drug and/or done something stupid but you never got caught because you are a nobody, the only reason he got caught was because he is famous and is well known!

JUSTIN BIEBER CAN IGNORE ALL COMMON COURTESIES. PEE IN FLOOR MOP BUCKETS. VIOLATE FAA RULES. DRAG RACE ACCELERATION AND CONSTANT SPEED 136MPH. XANAX WEED CODEINE. UNDERWEAR ON OUTSIDE IN PUBLIC. BROTHELS HOOKERS ESCORTS GIVING STD TO MODELS. PEEING IN ASPEN IN PUBLIC. SKATEBOARD AT BARS. EGGS. AND SO ON ENDLESS FOR MONTHS. PITY PARTY POOR JUSTIN BIEBER CANADIAN BLACK WHITE RAPPER. POOR CHILD. BOO HOO HOO. That white house petition is useless. Prez Borack Oh Bama has photos of him hugging and shaking hands with JUSTIN BIEBER at Christmas. Borack makes $400K per year JB $50M. Borack net worth $12M JB $160M. JB richer than any world leader. Michelle Oh Bama is JB black rapper mama giving advice. Petition signatures of 250,000 or more given the facts above are useless with no deportation possible ever. Borack and michelle want jobs in two years so Justin Bieber Bizzle Sizzle Fizzle is safe in good hands. Nobody can touch JB. Free to pee in any white house mop bucket. JB to own two $12M homes. Borack michelle live free in a white house. FACTS. LOL.

Banging Hot Wings Hooters STD biatches waitress Hoes not for dating average Joes. Not a spaceship but a rock of concrete the fizzled bizzle crawled under before any sizzle. House has NO bathrooms just modern floor mop buckets made of exotic ceramic. Back entrance to diddie scooter and usher in brothel hooker clients and illegal xanax weed codeine sizzurp soda deliveries free from the prying eyes of Sandy Springs PD. Also back entrance for USA Prez and Mexico Prez. Concrete not a good material to fly by. Hard as a rock though. Good place to maybe possibly gain humility and respect for others but probably not. 666
