Miley Cyrus @ The VMA's
Everyone has heard about Miley Cyrus and the VMA's, whether it was the fact that she was hosting, her spat with Nicki Minaj or her basically naked ass parading across the stage all night. However, did we forget that Miley is an herbalist just like us? You know she had to be high or have gotten high that night!
Aside from hosting, Cyrus brought weed to smoke backstage. She said, "I've been doing this (expletive) for a while," she said. "Because you're all my friends, and my song is kinda, sorta about the love of marijuana and the love of humankind, I brought a little joint if anyone would like any. Anyone?"
Miley wasn't the only one who smoked a lil something. Kanye West admitted to rolling something up to take the edge off before accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Melissa Henson, director of grassroots education and advocacy for the Parents Television Council, told The Associated Press, "MTV isn't under the authority of the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), so MTV would not be subject to any broadcast decency fines for that, but if I were a sponsor for the VMAs, I'd probably be pretty outraged. Especially since they labeled it as TV-14, so they're telling parents, `OK, this is OK for your 14-year-old to watch.'"
As legalization sweeps the country, we do not see the issue with cannabis becoming a more frequent topic of conversation. Although Miley's provocative antics and Kanye's outrageous statement that he will run for President in 2020 does not represent the cannabis community as responsible, level-headed individuals, the only way for marijuana to become more widely accepted is to talk about it.
