Refer Madness: Miley Cyrus Defends Smoking Pot

Although she didn’t come out directly and say it, Miley Cyrus smokes weed. She also thinks it’s less dangerous than consuming alcohol.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the singer/actress, who catapulted to fame as a child star on Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” opens up about her feelings about marijuana.

In 2010, the star was videotaped smoking a substance from a bong, which she later claimed was salvia, an herb that some use for its hallucinogenic properties.

Rumors have also surfaced that the reason she and her fiance Liam Hemsworth have been having problems is because her partying has gotten out of control.

When asked if she was a “stoner,” Cyrus, 20, told the magazine:  ”You can’t ask someone that and expect them to say yes. I did a song with Snoop Dogg called ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreak,’ so people can put it together for themselves.”

If that’s not a confirmation that she smokes weed, what is?


She added, “I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana. People can be mad at me for saying that, but I don’t care. I’ve seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I’ve never seen that happen with weed. . .
