Miley Cyrus & Salvia

'I'll Have

What She's Having'

12/13/2010 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus is now the inadvertent celebrity endorser of salvia -- because ever since that video of her smoking a bong full of it came out ... we're told sales of the herbal drug are sky high.

Salvia Divinorum
According to people who deal, legally, in salvia divinorum ... sales have increased since Friday -- in some cases up to 3 times the usual tally.

TMZ spoke with several head shops in the Los Angeles area and we're told -- not only have sales jumped -- but many of the customers specifically asked for "the stuff Miley was smoking." No ... mentioning Miley did not get them a discount.

While Miley's experimentation is generating curiosity in the hallucinogen -- one smoke shop employee tells us, "Salvia is one of those things that you only try once because it is so intense."

Another impact of the Miley video -- as we reported -- is renewed discussion about banning salvia in California. It is already illegal in 15 states.

I smoke Salvia every so often but really only do like 20x... which basically just make you giggly for 15 minutes and its over and you feel totally normal. People are making this far too big of a deal.

Wow, poster 1, you only dared type a three letter thingy tonight to get your no. 1 spot. You might have missed the spot if you dared any more letters. I bet you napped all day Sunday just to get up and do it.

But nevermind poster 1--I see you came back for two more posts that had more letters -even entire sentences but no real substance.

Good for you. You get the prize.

Just what we need. Yet another young celeb to watch self destruct. This is just the beginning of her experiment to get to full blown addiction. I'd bet she will be better at it than LL ever was. Fasten your seatbelt. Salvia is rough crap. Next it will be booze and coke.

So if Miley is the spokesperson for Salvia, that would make TMZ the advertising agency in this case?

BAHAHAH most Miley fans are over 18 now coz they were young when she was doing the early seasons of hannah montana so stfu, she hardly even has any young fans anymore...
I doubt little tweens even know what that is anyway, and it's not like they can buy it themselves so get over it..

MEMO TO: TMZ ET AL ,,,'

Does anybody think ... that any crap about miley cyrus ... IS RELEVANT? TO ANYONE else?

Does anybody even NOTICE that your "comments" sections about "these scoops" are so meaning-less they are NOT WORTHY of commenting.

Come up with some real tidbits of PEOPLE of interest ( that adults would actually READ) -or you'll be like ROL ... irrelevant.

MILEY CYRUS is a disney star ... with an demo group of pre-teens *(6 to 15 years old). As last count, how many TMZ readers ARE "that age?" Miley's fans read pop-sugar or popeaters, etc.;

Frankly, the amount of coverage you guys are giving this is a bit much. She smoked out of a bong. Big deal. First post, follow up, and move on.
