Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui is the center of another controversy this year but this time it’s about marijuana. The singer was at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. when officers found weed in her bag. According to Jauregui’s attorney, the singer was only “given a citation for possession of marijuana” and was not arrested or detained. Yet, that didn’t stop Harmonizers from having Jauregui’s back and lowkey celebrating a new icon.
Lauren Jauregui fans are not letting her marijuana possession taint their opinion of the singer.

On Dec. 14, Jauregui was going through security at Dulles International Airport when officers found weed in her bag.
Fans are turning into detectives digging up old evidence.

That is some serious foreshadowing, yo.
More than ever, this fandom has totally come to her side to support, and low key celebrate, the news.

She’s being labeled an idol after her amazing year in the spotlight.

It seems that 2016 was only able to be kind to one person and it was Lauren Jauregui.
Jauregui’s arrest has only solidified the love her fans are showing her.
Lauren could hide her sexuality for almost 3 years but could not hide a lil bag of marijuana in her suitcase. Idol #FreeLauren

This fandom is lit.
There’s speculation on how she handled the situation. Maybe she wore a disguise?

Some think she tried running to avoid being arrested.

While others think she just bold-faced lied.
security: *finds weed* what is this?
Lauren:…. it's merch#FreeLauren
— lizzie (@harmonizerliz) December 14, 2016
But, like, how do they know that it wasn’t merch?
And one fan is already suspecting her latest playlist addition.

Others think Camila Cabello might be behind Jauregui’s pot possession.

And we’re over here waiting for a denial but…

Jauregui fans are falling more and more in love with each other too because of this.

Harmonizers: That's My Girl ? #FreeLauren
I love this fandom.

That is some serious love right there.
However, some fans are shocked that she was even caught carrying weed.
She got away with hiding lipsticks in a purse at the Disney store but couldn't hide weed in her bag #FreeLauren

Perhaps TSA is more thorough that Disney PD. Just a thought.
Her arrest for pot is just another bit of doubt that makes #Camren seem more and more realistic.
She denied she was bi and then came out. She denied she smoked and now is arrested for weed possession. She denied camren… #freelauren
— E. A. (@EmmaAliani) December 14, 2016
Come on, Lauren. Tell us the truth. Is or was Camren ever a thing? The people want to know.
Jauregui has defended herself against the claims that she was arrested and threw some shade at news agencies for covering her arrest and not things like Aleppo.
