Miley Cyrus: ‘Alcohol Is Way More Dangerous Than Marijuana’
Miley Cyrus has an interesting viewpoint on illicit substances. The singer and actress, who didn't go so far as to admit marijuana use, says in a new interview that she perceives alcohol to be way more dangerous than marijuana. That sounds like she advocates pot, though!
"I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves," Cyrus told Rolling Stone in a new Q&A in the July 4 double issue. Got it, Miley. Snoop is closely associated with pot. You're associated with Snoop. We've connected the dots.
Cyrus further said, "I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana – people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care. I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
It sounds like the pro-pot movement has a new smokeswoman -- sorry, spokeswoman -- and her name is Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus continued, "As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
While she may be all about weed, Cyrus is not all about ecstasy. She's taken some criticism for her new single 'We Can't Stop,' with people thinking she says "molly," a nickname for the drug. She promises she is saying her own name.
Well, they do sound alike…we'll give her that much.
"I have an accent! So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly,'" she insisted. "You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says 'Miley.' I knew people were gonna wonder what I'm saying in that song."
Interestingly, her name is referenced in a Meek Mill song. Rapper Rick Ross uses her moniker when dropping a rhyme about cocaine. "People refer to [cocaine] as 'Miley Cyrus,'" the singer acknowledged. "My name is used in hip-hop songs to mean that. So even if I'm saying 'Miley,' people could still find something wrong with it."
That's a badge of honor, isn't it?
