According to PerezHilton.com, a great website for all that can be referred to as “juicy”, “This morning, a cell phone video leaked of Miley Cyrus celebrating just five days after her 18th birthday – with a bong!”. Smoking the bong to be exact. Perez goes on to say that Cyrus is not smoking good old Marijuana, a more acceptable drug for reasons I couldn’t tell you, but is instead smoking Salvia which is an herb based hallucinogen. Salvia is a member of the Mint family of plants (maybe she was out of Tic-Tacs), and has long been used as a narcotic by recreational drug users, and as a means of achieving higher levels of consciousness by Mazatec Shamans (Dude, Miley’s so hip). Salvia is currently legal in most of the United States but many have denounced it and called for its prohibition.
So Americans, why do we care about Miley Cyrus getting caught smoking Salvia? Why do we care about Miley Cyrus doing anything? Surely with all that’s going on in the world right now, we should have more than enough more important issues to occupy our time. Why do we have this obsessive (kinda creepy) love affair with the rich and famous, and furthermore, why do es it give us so much pleasure to assume that they are perfect and nail them to the cross when they prove otherwise? Should we as a society be examining our values and what makes us so bored with our own lives that we spend our time reading about 18 year old girls and their social lives? NAH!!! Who cares? Just sit back, put your feet up, and type Miley Cyrus and/or Salvia into your local search engine. In fact, why not check out some other celebrities smoking too? Enjoy your day America!
