Miley Cyrus Bong Fiasco Sparks Salvia Debate, Sales

CANNABIS CULTURE – Footage of teenie-pop sensation Miley Cyrus smoking salvia out of a bong has boosted sales of the drug and ignited comments from euphoria-phobic Drug Warriors who would love to see the legal substance banned.

The video, posted late last week by online gossip dump TMZ, shows the 18-year-old Hannah Montana star inhaling a cloud of white smoke out of a glass bong, then bursting into laughter and joking around with her friends.

“Is it me tripping?” she asks her friend with the camera. “I want more of that shit, I swear.”

Salvia divinorum, the psychoactive plant she was consuming, is legal in many US states (including California, where Cyrus was smoking) and Canada and is available in many head shops and cigar stores across North America.

TMZ claims the video has sent sales of the drug “sky high”, but has also enflamed opponents of the hallucinogenic herb.

“Miley is a star and young kids are going to emulate her behavior,” California State Assemblyman Anthony Adams said. “It’s time for state and federal governments to renew their push toward an outright ban.”

A Drug Enforcement Administration official supported Adams’ claim, according to the New York Daily News, adding that salvia is a “drug of concern.”

Salvia is considered to be a mostly harmless, non-addictive substance, and has been used traditionally by Mazatec shamans to facilitate visionary states of consciousness as part of spiritual healing.

But in the hypocritical world of showbiz, things like legality and the general harmlessness of a substance matter little.

As the gossip press continues to slam the teen star for setting a so-called ‘bad example’ to her impressionable young fans, and her dad Billy-Ray Cyrus tweets he is “so sad” about his daughters behaviour, even ex-junkie rock stars are attempting to get some tabloid milage out of the fiasco:

“I don’t know what that is, I never heard of it,” said Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler. “If Miley is smoking that, tell her to call me.”

    Thanks to people like her who have to record themselves smoking and acting a fool, salvia will now become that “hard to find” drug when it’s banned, just like mescaline,morning glory, etc. Its a shame too, I’ve had some fun on salvia.

    It seems like everyone is trying to blame Miley for the problems young girls have now. Saying they will follow in her footsteps is true, but it could’ve been avoided. Miley smoked salvia with her so-called friends and thought it would remain a private session. Even celebrities have a private life beyond the camera. I guess people got caught up in her character in her shows and movies that she is a teenage girl. Teenagers are far from perfect and I know because I’m one myself.

    Miley owes nobody anything. Teens experiment shit, get over it. If anyone is to blame for the spike in salvia sells it’s the person who created and leak this video. Blame TMZ and other shows for constantly showing this video for the sole purpose of increasing their ratings. If I had a video of me smoking a fatass blunt on TMZ, noone would care because they don’t know who I am. People are so hypocritical and full of shit.

    The Kurt Cobain story. He met Anton Lavey. He had the hippie feel to it. Like Einstein he was probally a little cookie crazy. Stayed in a room alone. And a mysterious murder/suicide. Marilyn Manson and Kurt Cobain two very influential artist.

    The nut doesnt fall far from the tree.
    She should stick to making bad movies and marginal music(at best).
    Just another overpaid white trash tramp.
    What else needs to be said?

    Miley Cyrus is a role model for the young females of the new generation.

    Instead alot of young women watch Miley shows, and become pregnant.

    After young females see Miley smoking, their going to want to smoke pot.

    If you ask me, Miley’s smoking, is a Girl-Guide-To-Getting-Boys

    You know how many men watch this, saying “this female will grow up with low moral standards”

    Miley should stick to making kid shows and kid concerts.

    The last thing we need is more iggnorant kids, smoking weed for the first time. Making all REAL bud smokers look bad.

    Thats why the cops is after some dealer they don’t know.

    Because some stupid little kids, with way too much money. Think they know… About marijuana… And think of marijuana as a childs game.

    DONT LET MILEY SMOKE.

    DONT LET MILEY TURN MARIJUANA into a life about , crappy pot and boys they think they like….

    It figures though. Miley isn’t aloud to get married until their 25.

    Billy Ray Says….

    Celebritys are pretty boring people if all they want to do is smoke pot.

    Don’t celebritys got shows, to go flaunt and brag on.

    Maybe drinking Bud from the can will send a better message to her peers. After all Anheuser is a legitimate company and have earned their place in American social settings. If she’s sweet and pouty maybe they’ll sponsor her? She could even become one of the Budweiser Girls!

    I smoked saliva, the 1X leaf not an an extract. Put me out of this world for a few min and no way would of I been able to handle an 5x,10x, or 30x extract.
    It’s sad she had to smoke something that can cause one to do dangerous things because they can’t tell reality from the trip.
    She would of been safer and better off doing the real deal.
    She is 18 now, but she has a lot of growing up to do because everyone around her, I assume, is a yes yes yes you can type of person to protect their pay checks.
    She needs be be careful of those around her who would like to use her for her fame and money. It would be ashame to see another young star get mixed up with people and things that cause her to crash and burn. We don’t need another Lohan.
