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."

I love how you can hear the people telling her to hold the smoke in. I've done that before and I stopped because I realized that this type of crap can happen to you. You also notice that the guy pushes her forward towards the bong telling her to take another inhale of the stuff. Just imagine the mums of the young girls who love miley cryus watching this video. They would probably send complaints to Disney. Her laugh is creepy by the way. I was petrified when she was talking gibberish. She is really creepy in this video.

this stuff is only bad if you do it while behind the wheel of a car... no different than alcohol. make booze illegal first - if you succeed at that, then go for weed, salvia, etc. and i agree with #3: i'm sure it was weed she was smokin anyway. who tested that stuff? she should have been smart and just said it was oregano...

Here's a thought: It is not the place of the damn government to try to protect us from ourselves. I am soooo sick of intervention into every aspect of my life. Salvia also serves as a natural sweetener, without elevating blood sugar levels. I would like the freedom to decide for myself what is and isn't good for me.

I agree with #67...make alcohol illegal first, then, and only then, go after salvia and marijuana. Alcohol kills a person every few minutes or so in drunk driving accidents, not to mention all the health expense it causes. I want to see just ONE article where marijuana ALONE (no additives whatsoever, just plain marijuana) was the cause of a behind-the-wheel death/car accident. There aren't any. I say LEGALIZE marijuana (Feds still need to legalize it here in California) OR make alcohol ILLEGAL!! Seriously, though....going after an herb and making it a schedule 1 'narcotic' like this Anthony Adams (in the story above) wants to do???? Are you crazy? Like I said, when you make alcohol illegal, then you can bitch about salvia and marijuana.......

okay guys...reality check: we were all kids/young adults, and we all did stupid stuff. i drank, drank & drove, smoked weed, stole porn mags, got in fights over girls, etc... her dad kicking her ass will do nothing for the situation. she's at that natural stage where being accepted by peers trumps all. unfortunately, being a star puts her in front of cameras and in the spotlight practically 24/7. if this event hadn't been filmed (why did she allow it???!!!) there would be no harm-no foul. her dad needs to encourage her to find a group of friends who will shield her from the media, not broadcast her private moments online! i think miley would agree with him on this...

Speaking as someone who has been experienced I would say that salvia divinorum is not a party drug like mere pot. Keep this legal, but use resposibly. Have 3 sober-like people to make sure you don't get hurt from the getting scared by something than is not there.

The comment that Miley is a role model drives me crazy. Miley is a teenager. Just like any 18 year old girl, she is going to experiment and do stupid things. Being on TV does not and should not change this.
That being said, parents that allow their children to idolize stars should take some personal responsibility and teach their children what a role model realy is. A role model is not some 18 year old girl with a record deal or some actor that plays pretend for a living. No wonder our world is so crazy.

Young kids are not going to "emulate" Miley's behavior simply because she's a "star" unless they've had as bad parental role models as she's had. If kids have GOOD parental role models, they'll be disgusted by Miley's behavior - ALL of it - and abandon her.

When are parents going to raise their own damn children instead of allowing celebrities to do it? Celebrities are NOT your kids' role models - YOU ARE, so raise them right already!

Miley is stupid as hell. She's obviously going to end up like some of the other "teen stars." I mean does she not know that there is a ****ing video camera in her face, recording every detail of her "psychedelic trip." I think she's just an attention whore and it is working :/
