Why Miley Cyrus
Prefers Marijuana Over
Miley Cyrus has definitely said goodbye to her good-girl, Hannah Montana image— and to prove it, she’s opening up about her drug use.
"I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves," she says when asked if she uses drugs. "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."
Thankfully for Miley, the singer is free to indulge in Mary J if she wants to.

"As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California,” she tells Rolling Stone. “So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
As for the rumor that Miley is singing about Molly, a form of ecstasy, in her new hit single “We Can’t Stop,” she insists she's simply reciting her name.
"I have an accent! So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly,'" she says. "You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says 'Miley.' I knew people were gonna wonder what I'm saying in that song."

Molly aside, the star admits that the word 'Miley' does refer to another drug— cocaine.
"People refer to [cocaine] as 'Miley Cyrus,'" she says, referencing Rick Ross' verse on Meek Mills' song "Believe It." "My name is used in hip-hop songs to mean that. So even if I'm saying 'Miley,' people could still find something wrong with it."
