Miley Cyrus: Controversial Video Sparks Salvia Ban

December 11, 2010
By

By now I’m sure you’ve seen the video of Miley Cyrus smoking salvia (allegedly) out of a bong. Even though the substance is currently legal to possess in California the incident has stirred up a heated debate – do state and federal governments need to push for an “outright ban”? Get the scoop below.


I expected this to happen from the moment I watched the now infamous ‘Miley Cyrus Bong Video’. In fact this is probably the chance that CA State Assemblyman Anthony Adams has been waiting for to push his failed bill from 2007 to outlaw the drug back into the spotlight.

According to Perez Hilton, Adams called the Disney starlet irresponsible for using the substance. Why? Because he claims it can cause a person to do “incredibly crazy things”. Also, he elaborated further by saying the starlet’s young fan base might “emulate her behavior”.

Parents across the globe are also concerned about Miley’s influence over their children. As you may recall this isn’t the ‘Party in the USA’ singers first scandal. Some are questioning (TMZ) if Cyrus is a L.I.T. – Lindsay in Training… What do you think?

Another concerned parent is her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. After seeing the video of his daughter partaking in the partakeables yesterday he voiced his concern via Twitter. He wrote, “I’m so sad”.

If Miley was indeed smoking Salvia is it a big deal – yes or no? Also, do you think she is a good influence for kids? Share your answers with us along with anything else that’s on your mind in the comment section.

In other news – Miley is set to star alongside Kelly Osbourne in the upcoming movie ‘So Undercover’. Find out more at Monsters & Critics.

    Ohhhh and it’s definitely salvia, theirs no marijuana in the world that would make you geek out that hard and act the way she did off of one hit. Believe that.

    Caffeine is a drug, tylenol is a drug, alcohol is a drug, cough syrup is a drug, mouthwash has alcohol in it, women that have children and get an epidural that drug their child, people who get a tooth pulled and get a shot of nova cane …… Everyone is addicted to some type of drug. Now I don’t even like Miley Cyrus but damn she’s young, she’s in LA, she’s an adult and perfectly capable of making her own decisions without needing to hear the opinion of people who have most likely done way worst than salvia in their lifetime….WOW

    I don’t see any reason to ban salvia. Sure, it makes you trip, but unlike acid, you’re never going to jump through a window. You can barely control your body enough to move.

    Also, I wouldn’t be as angry at Cyrus as I would at her friend who sold this to the press. Tons of kids have tried salvia, and it’s way better than kids trying black tar heroine, as is becoming a craze nowadays. Seriously, she’s young, she shouldn’t be a role model anyways. Anyone trying to make her into a role model is a bad parent.

    ya i don’t think miley is a very good role model for young kids. But we can’t be surprised because she has been a rebal since she was 15 years old. She went on vanity fair naked infront of the cover. they called it art i called it child porn. There was also that time when she had hlaf naked pictures of her self on myspace which were indeed her at the age of 14 years old. Then last year in 2009 miley was dancing on a pole at the teen choice awards. Believe me she does not want to be a disney kid at all. i hope she goes to jail or something

    Reality Check Says:

    Alcohol is much more dangerous than Salvia ever could be. Salvia is not something that one would do regularly. The effect diminishes with repeated use. The main danger is doing it in an unsafe way where you could fall and hit your head. It does not induce violence or crime like alcohol does. If anything should be banned it is booze. It kills daily!

    Adam (# 8) is soooo right; I will re-post his comment, and add that smoking pot is the only antidote to being brain washed and developing the attitude of “if it’s on TV, it must be true”.
    To the parents that are freaking out about their children being influenced by imaginary role models, while they themselves watch Jerry Springer, the Gardashians, or Fox News, I say, relax, take a hit, it’s too late,the damage has been done on you..
    Adam said:
    Are you serious, this girl is high on weed, you don’t smoke something and have your eyes look like that, even salvia won’t close your eyes and make the eyelids bulge out. she was obviously smoking weed and judging by the way she took the bong hit it looks like it wasn’t her very first time.

    people need to settle down, marijuana is not a bad drug, and putting so much faith into a pop star or any celebrity to have you kids grow up and be like, is a shame. children should idolize their parents, firemen, astronauts… people that make a difference in the world. not someone who is just another run of the mill filler for societies cravings for the new hottest thing, which is exactly what Miley used to be, which would also explain her behavior or using in this video..

    the camera quality is too professional to be a regular phone video, which means the releasing of this was EXTREMELY intentional, she is fading and trying to reinvent herself..

    I support Marijuana and I support whoever does it, but this is just a cry for help or a re-imaging from a fading little girl crying for career help…

    I own a smoke shop in California. Salvia is legal for insense purpose only. Role models are supposed to be someone we look up to for moral values. Miley Cyrus is a little girl without the parental guidance she needs. She should hookup with Michael Phelps and make a movie titled “Swimmin in Smoke”. She wanted this to get out for all to see, since her carreer is on the down slide as she reaches for Lohan status.She isn’t cute, talented or smart. Besides WHO CARES!

    What makes her stupid in that video is obviously ALCOHOL; we must ban that.
