Miley's Bong

Fires Up

Anti-Salvia Movement

12/11/2010 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus is getting ripped by the dude who tried, unsuccessfully, to ban salvia -- the hallucinogenic herb sources say Miley was smoking last month during her 18th birthday party.  

1209_miley_EX_TMZ_03
Anthony Adams -- a former CA State Assemblyman -- tells TMZ it was irresponsible of Miley to smoke salvia, which he says can make "you do incredibly crazy things." Adams adds, "Miley is a star and young kids are going to emulate her behavior."

Back in 2007, Adams tried to get salvia outlawed and classifed as a Schedule I controlled substance -- the same as LSD and marijuana. When the bill was voted down ... Adams settled for restrictions on selling salvia to minors. It is still legal in California for adults.

After seeing the video of Miley smoking the drug, Adams thinks this is the perfect time to bring back his failed bill: "It's time for state and federal governments to renew their push toward an outright ban."

All of you making negative comments - just light up, oops, I mean lighten up. Did you know there is nothing easier to get then a prescription for 'medical' dope (constant headaches works)? And then your mate could be named your 'provider', making them allowed to grow it legally.

Miley seems to be on her way to the life of LiLo & then the eventual Britney mental breakdown in about 5-10 years! I hope not!

This is not a rare occurrence for anyone of Miley's age in most parts of the world. Instead of casting blame, why not ask the question, why do people feel the need to do drugs, or binge drink alcohol? Is it because we're so happy? Or is it because we live in a culture that inadvertently makes us feel bad about ourselves?

It's really indicative of a broken system when the people that we worship and deify have all the same problems as everyone else. Given the rampant use of substance in our culture, we should be looking at our own values as a society rather than heaping blame on an 18 year-old who happens to have lots of money.

There are people in the Eastern half of this world who don't have any possessions, or money, and rely on nothing but goodwill and god forbid, faith, to survive, and they are the most naturally content people in the world. We choose to go down a different path, and look where we are: in the comments section of TMZ....

There were kids that looked up to OJ. Did they run out and slash their X's afterwords? No. Such a stupid argument. I can't stand people like him in our society anymore. Obviously, they are the problems since this has been going on for eons and they can't figure it out. So instead let's work to take it away instead of really hitting the issues. He's an idiot in a cardboard box with a cut out window.

@puhleez I'm pretty sure if you do a little bit of digging about every culture around the world you will find that they use one substance or another, not necessarily to escape a horrible life but to help them experience life.

grfan42069, if you think that smoking pot and driving is wise and safe, than you are uneducated. There ARE numerous studies that show being high on marijuana and driving are dangerous too, as much as being under the influence of alcohol.


if you read my post i said smoking a cig..the point im making they make weed out like its the devil yet alcohol which is just as bad is legal and fine.its double standards.btw i do neither.

#29.. get a clue would you? When you are inebriated you are less likely to protect yourself against RAPE, MOLESTATION or worse. If you had ever been in that situation you would know what I was saying was complete FACT. Using substances that impair your ability to think or react clearly .. leave you vulnerable. Most youth do not know this.. have zero experience to draw from .. so they end up victims. Yes, you can get raped, molested, or even die at any time from anything or from any situation.. but why leave yourself vulnerable if you can educate yourself and at least TRY to prevent it. Besides.. when was the last time you decided or saw that a teenager acted or even attempted to be "responsible"? Maybe some of them out there are.. but on TMZ .. there are ZERO (which is why I am commenting). Miley has the unfortunate "responsibility" of being a huge role model. Children paid for her current status .. she needs to honor that. As a side note... people who disagree with the idea that mind altering substances can lead to dangerous actions or behavior are obviously deluded.

staroftexas5000 children paid? No parents paid.
"mind altering substances can lead to dangerous actions or behavior" So can having bad parents. So can we outlaws these stupid parents? I'm totally down. You use the word "can" so can walking across the street. I "can" get hit by a car. Standing outside in the sun. I "can" get skin cancer. There's nothing to back up these claims that they lead to. It's an assumption. Not everyone gets cancer. Not everyone becomes a drug addict. Not everyone follows their stars like bumbling idiots. Is this society NOT capable of taking responsibility for their OWN actions? Are we going to have to start running around with plastic forks and spoons because a star someones kid looked up to stabs someone with a steak knife? EDUCATE. Why is everyone trying to lay the world on an 18 year old girls shoulders?

Well you have to understand that Miley is in that awkward stage, ya know. Right after puberty, and just before her first DUI.

What a shame...yes people it is youth and we have all done things in the past, but come on can't you see what's happening to this child. She's growing totally out of control and she's going to loose everything she has worked for. For those of you talking about the alcohol, pretty sure she's hitting that as well.
