Former Disney pop star Miley Cyrus recently offered her two cents on alcohol and marijuana use. In her June 18 interview with Rolling Stone, the 20-year-old singer said, “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.”

Cyrus also stated that “it’s legal in the state of California.” While Miley is right that marijuana is safer than alcohol, she is mistaken about the Sunshine State’s cannabis laws. Recreational use is still prohibited, and possession of an ounce or more can lead to arrest.

    While I’m in favor of anyone speaking common sense, I am NOT in favor of Miley Cyrus being the face of Marijuana reform.

    Miley Cyrus is a great celebrity spokesperson and should be applauded for supporting the cause,

    It’s too bad there aren’t more celebrities joining the cause, but there will be.

    We have to keep the pressure on our government to decriminalize marijuana,

    Please sign the latest petition on petition.whitehouse.gov

    and spread the word around, we have 1 month to get 100,000 signatures and then the whitehouse must respond again, it will also show how easily the proponents of marijuana legalization can mobilize.

    I don’t have twitter or facebook if anyone does and wants to put the link up or just to sign here it is
