Miley Cyrus Thinks Alcohol Is More Dangerous Than Marijuana
Miley Cyrus thinks that alcohol is a more harmful drug than pot. “I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana – people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care,” Cyrus told Rolling Stone. “I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed.”
Though Cyrus didn’t outright admit to marijuana use herself, she didn’t deny it either. “I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,’ ” she said. “So people can put it together for themselves.”
Marijuana is legal in the state of California for medical use. “As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things,” she said. “I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
This isn’t the first drug-related controversy. In her most recent single, “We Can’t Stop,” there is a lyric that, due to Cyrus’s pronunciation, is unclear and has led to questions. Some hear the song lyric as “dancing with molly,” – molly is a powerful form of ecstasy – though she insists that the line is “dancing with Miley.” “You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says 'Miley,’” Cyrus said. “I knew people were gonna wonder what I'm saying in that song.”
In 2010, Cyrus was photographed smoking out of a bong. She denied that it was marijuana, and instead claimed it was salvia, a legal hallucinogen. However, at her 19th birthday party that year, she joked that she smoked too much marijuana after her friends served her a Bob Marley cake.
