Justin Bieber's Toxicology Report Could Have Been Even Worse

justin bieber"What the hell is that kid on?" That's what we've been wondering since last week -- and now we know. The toxicology report shows that Justin Bieber had Xanax and marijuana in his system at the time of his DUI arrest in Miami a week ago. That's it. I mean -- that's plenty. But it's a relief to know that the Biebs wasn't on anything harder. I'd feared it was cocaine or worse. He was speeding, after all. But there's something almost poignant about this combination of substances.

Prescription Xanax -- was Justin stressed out? Well, of course he was. But knowing that he was on anti-anxiety meds just drives that home. I'm on the verge of saying "poor kid" -- except that he's been so obnoxious. I tend to experience compassion fatigue when the subject of Justin Bieber comes up.

So that's it. They tested Bieber for cocaine, opiates (heroin!), meth, and other drugs, and nada. No traces of them or even of alcohol. Wow -- no booze in his system!

So does that make a difference? A lot of people consider marijuana a "light" drug -- maybe even safer than alcohol. It's still illegal and incredibly foolish to toke and drive, and it's probably even worse with anti-anxiety meds. But I feel like there's a line here that Bieber won't cross.

He didn't drink. And he didn't do hard drugs. I think he's still kind of toeing the line, trying to figure out how much damage he can do without doing any serious damage to himself. Know what I mean? It was looking like he was hell-bent on self-destruction, but looking now at what was actually in his system, I wonder. He's still acting out, daring the people in his life to intervene.

What do you think of Bieber's toxicology's report -- are you relieved, surprised, shocked?

I take Xanax and I can tell you that's probably why he wasn't drinking. I can usually handle my alcohol pretty well but if I have even one Xanax in the morning and drink in the evening I will be slurring my words at about 1 1/2 beers.

You had feared it was cocaine because he was speeding? Lololol you really have no idea what different drugs do to you do you? Honestly i think the media blew it all up. What 20 year isn't popping pills and smoking dope? It's experimenting and it's normal.

JUST Xanax? Xanax is the most abused benzo on the market and has good street value.  For those who need it and take it responsibly, it's a good med.  But if you have THC in your system chances are you're taking xanax recreationally.  Unless we know the levels we don't know that he is necessarily abusing it but the chances are good that he is.


Also, I take issue with the "thank god it's only xanax" mentality.  Perscription drug abuse is a major problem with teenagers.  It's just as easy to take a few pills from mom and dad's medicine cabinet as it is to raid the liquor cabinet.

I agree with michelepahant. Also when you take more xanax than perscribed it can do the opposite it's supposed to. It can make you VERY agrressive & nasty.
