Have you heard? TMZ has acquired video of teen pop princess Miley Cyrus taking a big ol' bong hit then giggling like Cheech tickling Chong.
However, Miley insiders were quick to announce that the young Ms. Cyrus was NOT smoking illegal marijuana (which causes coughing and munchies) but fully legal salvia, a psychoactive plant that causes a few delightful minutes of hallucination in some users and a few minutes of brain-breaking horror hallucinations in others.
Expect Miley's stature as teen trendsetter to fuel a nationwide salvia boom, with hundreds of thousands of teens and tweens smoking salvia and having a safely weird time, and many others going batshit crazy. I'm setting a Google alert for "salvia tragedy" RIGHT NOW.
