Justin Bieber: Smoking weed leads to talent, says Tommy Chong
TMZ caught up with the smokester, who says of Justin Bieber's recent pot-related antics, "I knew [Bieber] was smoking before he knew it. Because of his music. Because of his dancing. The guy is a phenom ... It's not just his looks. It's his talent. And you don't get talent like that by drinking alcohol. The herb, man! The herb!"

Funny, we always thought weed was more likely to make someone eat a lot of junk food and intensely watch episodes of "Schoolhouse Rock."
And what has the Biebs been up to since the photo surfaced of him toking up? Getting a tattoo of a hockey mascot on his shoulder. Naturally.
