It used to be that if you were a musician and drugs were seized from your tour bus, you were either a rockstar or an artsy singer-songwriter. Well, now Justin Bieber has joined the club after one of his tour buses was pulled over and weed and drug paraphernalia was seized by border security. Yup, sorry hard partying rockers: You’re now on par with Justin, the epitome of no-talent, all-marketing pop stars. TMZ reports …

Chief Customs and Border Protection Officer Ken Hammond tells us, the bus was stopped at the Ambassador Bridge — which separates Windsor, Canada and Detroit — after a drug-sniffing dog detected the presence of weed on board. Hammond says a subsequent search of the bus revealed marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Justin was NOT on the bus in question. We’re told the drugs and paraphernalia were seized and the driver was issued a citation. The driver and passengers were subsequently released without further incident.

All of this is well and good, but I have to ask: Who the hell tries to smuggle drugs across the border? If you can afford multiple tour buses, are you seriously telling me that you can just buy your weed at your destination instead of trying to sneak it across the border? That’s just stupid. Stupid stupid stupid.
