Weed Found On Justin Bieber's Tour Bus
Everybody has to grow up sometime, and over the past few months Justin Bieber has done an admirable job of convincing the world that he's no longer just an innocent teen. To wit: according to the Detroit Free Press, the van that the baby-faced singer was traveling on in Detroit was found to be carrying weed on Sunday.
Beibs wasn't on it at the time, and it was only a small amount—enough to be confiscated but still considered to be intended for personal use.
The pot in question was discovered by a drug-sniffing dog as the bus was crossing into the U.S. from Canada.
It's not the first time that there have been signs of trouble for Bieber. In June, his manager suggested that it might be time for the singer to go to rehab, since he had begun hanging out with a bad crowd and was being influenced by the wrong people. Prior to that, he was accused of spitting on a neighbor, and suggested that Anne Frank would have been a Belieber.
