Miley Cyrus: Smoking Salvia Was a 'Bad Decision'
The pop star says she regrets her actions "because of my fans and because of what I stand for"
In the March issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands Feb. 15, Cyrus is asked whether she feels unfairly judged, given that other people her age smoke a lot more than salvia – a natural herb that is legal in California, though it has hallucinogenic effects.
“But they’re not Miley Cyrus,” she says. “They’re not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for.”
In the video, shot during the week of her 18th birthday, Cyrus is seen smoking the herb and laughing. “I’m having a little bit of a bad trip,” she says into the camera.
The video ends with Cyrus laughing and saying, “I want more of that s––.”
