Miley Cyrus Agrees “Alcohol Is Way More Dangerous Than Marijuana’
Posted by marijuana.com
While many female celebrities enjoy marijuana’s benefits (both medically and recreationally), few of them are as open about their smoking habits as Miley Cyrus. The A-lister and full-fledged star has made it abundantly clear in the past that she sides with weed.
And in her latest interview with Rolling Stone, she takes a more active stance in favor of marijuana. No, it’s not exactly rocket science, as Miley Cyrus has stated what countless others have said. But to a much broader audience:
“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.”
As long as it isn’t illegal, there are far more dangerous things. 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.”
You’re probably thinking: “I’ve been saying that for years!” And yes, we all have. However, the common man or woman’s voice is not heard by enough people to make a dent into corruption and prohibition. The voice of celebrities–especially ones with tens of millions of Twitter and Facebook followers–is heard by a lot of people on a daily basis.
That’s why celebrities should play a very integral, important part in legalization. If they have time to post about how much they smoke and how much they love weed, they should have enough time to take an active approach towards progression and legalization.
Burn one for Miley for not hiding behind her star power and for simply telling it how it is. It’s high time for other A-Listers to follow suit.
