Miley Cyrus Admits That She Thinks “Alcohol Is Way More Dangerous Than Marijuana”
Looks like Miley Cyrus is more likely to say “Puff, puff, pass” than “Cheers to that” (sorry, Rihanna!). In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the 20-year-old singer shared her views on alcohol and marijuana.
“I did a song with Snoop Dogg called ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,’ so people can put it together for themselves,” Cyrus says. “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.”
While the “We Can’t Stop” singer doesn’t exactly admit to smoking weed, she reveals that she’s a proud resident of Cali where the ganja is legal. “As long as it isn’t illegal, there are far more dangerous things,” Cyrus says of marijuana. “And it’s legal in the state of California. So I’m happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be.”
Cyrus’ drug talk didn’t stop there. In her interview with Rolling Stone writer Rob Tannenbaum, Cyrus talks about the popular form of Ecstasy known as Molly. “I have an accent! So when I say ‘Miley,’ it must sound like ‘Molly,’” she says regarding speculation that she says Molly in her latest single “We Can’t Stop.” “You’re not allowed to say ‘Molly’ on the radio, so it obviously says ‘Miley.’ I knew people were gonna wonder what I’m saying in that song. People refer to [cocaine] as ‘Miley Cyrus.’ My name is used in hip-hop songs [Meek Mill's "Believe It"] to mean that. So even if I’m saying ‘Miley,’ people could still find something wrong with it.”
Miley Cyrus’ full Q&A will be available in the July 4 summer double issue of Rolling Stone. Do you agree with the singer’s comments on weed versus cocktails?
