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.

Mitt Romney To Legalize Marijuana And Gay Marriage, Once In Office

Mitt Romney hates gay rights and marijuanaWashington, DC. — Marijuana users and advocates for gay marriage around the country are celebrating after Mitt Romney once again pledged his hatred for marijuana and gay rights at a press conference this afternoon. In an era of ‘say one thing to get elected and then do the complete opposite once in office’, judging from the current promises made by Romney on the campaign trail, marijuana and gay marriage will be 100% legal in all 50 states if he does get elected.

This winning strategy reminds voters of Obama back in 2008 when he vowed to be extremely lenient on marijuana laws and let the states decide the legal status of the plant. Since then voters have learned that he has become by far the strictest president in over 20+ years on marijuana laws. He has dispatched the DEA into every state that has legalized the plant, raiding houses and dispensaries, and put thousands of people in prison.

Avid marijuana user Paul Horner said he’s delighted to hear of Mitt Romney’s tough stance on marijuana. “I sure hope he gets elected. With how much he’s been talking about marijuana like it’s a bath salt zombie apocalypse, I know he’ll make legalizing it the first item on his agenda if elected president. My fellow potheads and I are voting for him for sure!”

Eric Burns who is an editor for the New York Times says that besides Romney legalizing marijuana and gay marriage once in office, he’ll be doing a lot more too. “This also means Romney will end the War in Afghanistan on his first day in office. It’s tough to say now, but it appears Romney is the candidate to vote for in 2012.”

Dean Huls is a political adviser for Mitt Romney and approves of him using the ‘Obama strategy’ to get elected. “Obama was a learning experience for a lot of us,” Huls said. “Everything Obama promised while running for President in 2008 he has gone ahead and done the complete opposite. He guaranteed to stop the wars, he then continued the wars. He said he would lock up the bad guys on Wall Street, he then bailed out all the bad guys on Wall Street. He talked about being lenient on marijuana laws, then made it a priority to lock up marijuana users. Obama promised the idea of more personal freedoms but then signed NDAA which allows the government to indefinitely detain American citizens with no trial or jury. He said he would close Guantanamo Bay, kept Guantanamo Bay open. The list goes on and on and on.” Huls continued, “Mitt Romney is using the ‘Obama strategy’ to get into the White House and it might just be crazy enough to work. Unfortunately for him though, Obama will also be using the ‘Obama strategy’. I think it’s safe to say this race is far from over.”
