We study both function theoretic and spectral properties of the weighted Laplacian Δ f on complete smooth metric measure space (M, g, e −f dv) with its Bakry-Émery curvature Ric f bounded from below by a constant. In particular, we establish a gradient estimate for positive f -harmonic functions and a sharp upper bound of the bottom spectrum of Δ f in terms of the lower bound of Ric f and the linear growth rate of f. We also address the rigidity issue when the bottom spectrum achieves its
