No matter how many handlers a teenage star has, no one can compete against the sound advice of an 18-year-old peer, which is how former tween idol-turned-Britney Spears-in-training Miley Cyrus
wound up smoking out of a bong on video while tripping her face off. TMZ shared the video
earlier today, which shows Miley hosting an intimate gathering at her house just five days after her 18th birthday. But instead of studying lists of the various politicians in our country so that they'll all be prepared to vote for the first time come next Election Day, Miley and her friends were busy smoking…something.
Before you proclaim Miley Cyrus to be a total stoner, however, it may be important to note that friends claim Miley isn't smoking marijuana, but salvia, which comes from a different plant and is said to produce hallucinogenic effects. Like that's so much better. Sure, it may be legal in California to possess salvia, but that doesn't change the fact that Miley is smoking it in order to get ripped out of her mind. Heck, she even says so in the video -- at one point complaining that she's not trippin' enough. Of course she says this while in a fit of laughter, right before claiming to see her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, who isn't actually there. The video ends before Miley can take another hit, but not before she babbles incoherently into the camera for a good minute or two. Meanwhile, if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of a cash register opening -- ka-ching! -- inside the brain of the girl holding the camera.
Ah, what it must be like to be young and friends with a celebrity who's willing to do drugs on camera....
