Brooklyn, NY — Exciting news for Justin Bieber fans and pot smokers around the world, as the Bieber camp told reporters at a press conference this morning that Bieber and rapper Lil Twist are teaming up for a one-night-only benefit concert for NORML, which works to legalize marijuana.

“We’re addressing these issues about Justin smoking marijuana, as reported by TMZ, before it gets out of hand,” Bieber’s manager Paul Horner told reporters. “Justin has always been an activist and by teaming up with Lil Twist for this benefit show it will not only restore his image but it is also for a great cause. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Opening for Bieber and Lil Twist are long time marijuana advocates Phish. Trey Anastasio who plays guitar and is lead singer for the group said he is looking forward to the concert. “This is a great way to spread awareness about marijuana. Our fans have always had our back, so I hope they support Justin and Lil Twist the same way they’ve always supported us. It will be a great night for a great cause, and we’re really ecstatic to being a part of it.”

Eric Burns who is a spokesman for Barclays Center where the concert will be held said he is thrilled to have Bieber and Lil Twist performing there. “We couldn’t be anymore pleased. Raising awareness about marijuana and working to legalize it is always a great thing,” said Burns. “Also, for some reason I thought Bieber was a girl, no disrespect. I’m not saying a chick couldn’t do all this, I guess I’ve just always been confused. But now that’s all cleared up and I can’t wait for him to perform at our venue.”

Bieber told reporters why he decided to do the concert. “You know, like, if we don’t do something now, the government could take away all our rights and stuff and I’m just trying to do something positive here. I love all my fans and I hope they come out to support what we’re trying to do. Beliebers unite!”

11-year-old Ashley Hawthorne from Brooklyn said she is excited about the upcoming concert. “I can’t wait to go! I’ve never tried marijuana before, but anything Justin does, I will always do. I’m a true belieber!”

29-year-old Aaron Johnson who just got done serving a 3 year prison sentence for felony harassment and stalking of Bieber said he is delighted about the chance to attend this concert. “I served my time and I learned my lesson. I apologized to Justin Bieber’s family and his friends. I had a problem, but I’m better now,” Johnson said. “I should have had clothes on when I showed up at the Bieber’s Thanksgiving dinner in 2009 uninvited. And I should have had clothes on when I was escorted from Bieber’s residence those seven different times. And I should have had clothes on, well pretty much all of 2009. There was actually very few days that I had clothes on that year.” Johnson continued, “I told my probation officer, who has agreed to let me go to this concert next month, that I promise I will keep my clothes on the whole time. You can’t keep a good belieber down!”

NORML is a nonprofit lobbying organization working to legalize marijuana, stop arrests of smokers, provide educational research and information on marijuana. NORML’s mission is to move public opinion to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty.

The concert at Barclays Center is a one-night-only performance and is an all ages show. Bieber Bongs and Bieber Blunts along with other Justin Bieber pro-marijuana merchandise will be available at the concert. The show is scheduled for February 6th at 8 PM. Tickets for this event go on sale tomorrow. The Barclays Center is located at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. You can purchase tickets online or call (785) 273-0325.

    I would love to go to this! Too bad I live on the other side of the country :(

  7. I’d like to see Phish… wouldn’t wanna see Bieber ever. But if he’s there promoting marijuana, I would empty my bank account to see that

  8. Dave's house says:

    Who the f*ck is Lil Twist?

  9. Barclays Center would be a good venue for this… it’s in the hood. Little white Justin Bieber will fit in perfect

    They sell beer at sporting events, which are often promoted by brewing companies. You cannot watch a football game without seeing a budweiser commercial. What is the difference when it comes to influencing children? A beer commercial with talking frogs is just as appealing to children as a pop idol.

  11. I’m a belieber!!!!!!!!!

  12. Seriously, who the f*ck is Lil Twist?

  13. 420BlazeIt says:

    Glad to see he did not stop smoking because of those stupid girls cutting themselves.

    Good for you Justin.

  14. As an avid pot smoker, I applaud Justin Bieber. Good for him!

  15. I’ve never liked or disliked justen but this is really irresponsable, he is not just anybody,
    Weather he wants it or not he is a role model to young youth. They are clearly inspired by him and he should at the same time be inspired to set a good example for them to follow. I’m not bashing
    Weed but in his position he needs to really be cautious of the decisions he makes in his life because they do affect those who follow him.
