Miley Cyrus’ bong woes deepen; Salvia is serious stuff
HollywoodNews.com: Everyone had a moderate panic attack when video of Miley Cyrus hitting a bong surfaced on the internet. Then, for some reason, reactions mellowed when learning that she was not smoking marijuana, she was only smoking the California legal substance, Salvia. Give everyone a little bit of time to do their research and all of a sudden everyone’s a Salvia expert. The truth of the matter is that Salvia is no joke and just because it is legal in the state of California does not mean it is any less harmful or controversial.
The only reason Salvia is legal in California is that it is used in certain religious services, but its effects can reportedly rival that of LSD and Miley is not exactly a Shaman. Comparing it to marijuana seems like comparing apples to oranges, but all analogies aside, Salvia is some very potent stuff.
“It can cause psychosis, your motion sensors are off, you can feel like you are in two places at the same time, you have 2-D visions,” states Clare Kavin, a registered addiction specialist and administrative director of the Waismann Method.
In the alleged video, Cyrus can be overheard saying, “I’m having a little bit of a bad trip. Is that a Liam lookalike — is that my boyfriend? Is that me tripping? Does that look like Liam at all? I want more of that s—.”
Truly disturbing. Not only for Miley, but for the millions of young fans who look up to Cyrus. Maybe she should try and keep her rock star alter-ego, Hannah Montana, in check, at least for the kids anyway. Hopefully we won’t see a sudden burst of popularity of this ‘legal’ substance among tweens anytime soon, but as a role model, Cyrus has a ton of influence.
