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.

My kids have only TWO role models. Their parents. I wouldn't allow some rich snobby actress be their role model.

What's the problem? ALL young people hit on stuff that completely incapacitates you and makes you act like an ass. If she doesn't experiment with everything that's available how is she going to find her drug of choice? Her drug of addiction is out there and she just has to find it and fast if she's going to outdo all those other screwed up young female "celebrities" that she's imitating.

It is truly a shame for her to put a video like this on the web. Now lawmakers, who should be focusing on important matters, are all wanting to be the forefront of the banning of this Ancient and Spiritually connected substance, herb.

I think we should ban videos of idiots on the net doing things like mentioned before me, doing substances that are perfectly fine being left alone now under pressure to be illegal. thanks whore.
I tried this a while back, very strong dose, a 50:1 extract from canada, wow, too much, really is intense. I did not try and post it on the internet and sure as hell didn't want everybody to know about it and watch me act a fool. And most importantly, I don't want to make it illegal.

I can't stand this stuff, but that doesn't mean it should be illegal. I don't like McDonald's or cigarettes But everyday science and research is proving they kill people.... they still are making Billions of dollars, oh and aren't illegal. Salvia harmless as it is hopefully can stand up to the pressure of the scrambling, fumble-headed media and remain as is pre- Miley Cyrus. It's a shame too that cigarette companies have so much denial and so many lawyers. This is where the real problem is.
once "Psychoactive" or "Psychedelic" is mentioned,,,, people panic and freak out,,, oaahhhh, let's ban it because we don't understand it..... aaahhh. media frenzy.

My gaggle of 40-50YOish friends take the trip down Salvia row every few weeks, we dedicate one night and just sit around, like Miley.

Yes, it is a trip, a psychotic break from this common reality and it takes you to a place where you see and hear and say things only you can begin to fathom. To those with a mind for spiritual growth, these things are hints and the first holes where the illusion of reality breaks down and we can see to see the reality of it, that life really is but a dream within a dream. Its also a place of unspeakable joy and beauty.

I hope this doesn't cause my state to criminalize Salvia, then I'll need to go down that back alley and rub elbows with pot-heads and criminals to buy my tickets to paradise...

Meanwhile Marlboroughs and Southern Comfort can be bought legally, for those of you craving a more violent and deadly way to enjoy your own personal break from reality...

Post 106: Well put. There are many more dangerous ways to hurt yourself and others and they are available "in most places" on every few street corners. Alcohol and Tobacco should be on the stand here in this court.

Save Salvia for Salvation! Hear my Cries, Listen to my Prayers you sacred herb, I love you, ......A+ for Salvinorin A!!!!
