Justin Bieber has been making headlines in recent weeks with photos posted on the internet which seem to show him smoking pot. TMZ is reporting today that new pics show Justin not only smoking more pot with his rapper buddies, but also depict a large bottle of codeine, aka sizzurp, at the bash. Additionally, two sets of double cups are seen on the table near the narcotic bottle, which are used commonly to consume the drug. Rappers Lil Za and Lil Twist are allegedly rolling up blunts for the party, and one pic even shows Bieber drinking out of one of the double cups, although there’s no evidence he’s actually consuming the drug.
Sources connected to Justin Bieber are adamantly denying he uses the drug. Based on multiple recent photos, however, it's seems pretty obvious he smokes pot. In the new photos we don't actually see anyone present consuming the sizzurp drug.
Celeb Dirty Laundry writes that Justin obviously has the money and the means to get his hands on whatever his particular drug of choice may be, and as he keeps publicly demonstrating, he apparently enjoys partaking.
They suggest the 18 year-old’s alleged drug use may be the root cause of his split with longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez. She would have to distance herself from a “hard drug user” not only because of the inherent dangers of being around that behavior, but also to protect her wholesome public image and career.
They point out that Bieber’s core audience age group still has curfews and have to get money for CDs, downloads and concerts from their parents. Justin is very quickly turning into a male version of Lindsay Lohan, flaunting his bad behavior before the public and thumbing his nose at the press that’s reporting it at the same time.
Sources close to Justin Bieber are “unbelievably frustrated” that he's hanging out with his rapper friends, according to Global Grind. While that’s understandable given recent events, it’s hard to pin all of the “Boyfriend” singer’s problems on other people.
Even though there’s a point to be made for peer pressure, and being influenced negatively by hanging with the wrong crowd, ultimately one is responsible for one’s own actions.
