Marijuana

Five things Justin Bieber should know before getting blunted in Denver

5. Marijuana is decriminalized...if you're older than 21. Look, Biebs, we get it. Smoking a little ganja helps take the edge off the demands of being an obscenely rich, highly vaunted sex symbol. Trust us: In Colorado, more than anywhere else except perhaps Amsterdam, we get it. Just the same, although it's legal to get lifted in the Mile High City, you can only imbibe if you're of age, which, obviously, you're not, so we just know you're not even going to think about firing up, right? Just in case you are, though, keep reading.

4. You're Justin Bieber. Get a damn vaporizer. Smoking blunts is cool and all, but you made it seem as if you wanted to get caught puffin' on the Dutch. Have your people not told you about the Vape-Pen? It looks just like one of those electronic cigarettes, except it gets you high -- like, really high -- and it's easier on your lungs, so you can hit all those high notes on "Baby." Might as well shop around while you're here, eh?
