Breaking: The NYPD Loves Salvia, Thanks To Miley Cyrus

Breaking: The NYPD Loves Salvia, Thanks To Miley Cyrus

The case of the Miley Cyrus bong-hit-seen-round-the-web is a curious one. Last December, a video of a newly legal Miley smoking up amongst friends found its way to TMZ. The vid caused an instant outcry from concerned parent groups and led Miley’s pop, Billy Ray, to apologize for his daughter’s uncontrollable behavior. Also? It taught at least one patrol car full of hardened NYC cops all about the joys of Salvia.

How do I know this? A few nights ago, I walked into a deli on New York’s Lower East Side and ordered a midnight snack (which, btw, was decidedly undelicious — who puts raw onions on a sandwich without asking first?

Attention World: Take A Chill Pill About The Miley Cyrus Salvia Video

Footage of Miley Cyrus smoking out of a bong leaked last week, and the entire celeb-universe is acting like the Disney star is one Jonas-brother-snub away from a trip to Betty Ford. When the reality of situation is that Miley’s 18 and salvia is legal. Smoking a little pot — or having a few drinks or even giving a lap dance — is normal teenage behavior and it doesn’t necessarily indicate some horrific larger problem.

Remember when Mike Huckabee was running for president and claimed he’d never once tried beer? And the general reaction was to be vaguely weirded out by this? Because this was a grown man — a leader at that — who’d never had basic, universal experiences. Is that what we expect from Miley? That just because she was once a child star she should never be allowed to become an experienced adult?
