Miley Cyrus: Alcohol 'more dangerous' than weed

Miley Cyrus has gone from tween dream to twerk queen, and in a forthcoming interview with Rolling Stone the singer/actress is still proving that she's no longer Hannah Montana.

In the July 4 issue, the former Disney star weighs in on marijuana use, saying that "there are far more dangerous things" in the world - like liquor.

"I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana – people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care," Cyrus told the magazine. "I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."

She was less straightforward when it came to talking about her personal habits, demurring that since she's done "a song with Snoop Dogg Lion called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks' ... people can put it together for themselves."

Another topic Cyrus touched on is the use of the drug molly, a form of ecstasy. Some listeners accused Cyrus of mentioning the drug in her single, "We Can't Stop," which includes lyrics like, "Everyone in line in the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom."

A rep for the song's producer already clarified that Cyrus isn't singing about "molly," but rather herself.

"I have an accent!" Cyrus said to RS. "So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly.' 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."

In case you missed it, here's the new music video for the single, "We Can't Stop."

    Miley's an adult just like you and shes just stating her opinion. That has nothing to do with money or power.

    I'm glad someone has finally solved the alcohol vs. marijuana debate!! "Thanks, Miley, for being there to figure it out for us." I don't know about anyone else out there, but tonight I will rest easy knowing Miley Cyrus is watching our backs.

    I totally agree with her regarding alcohol vs weed ... one is obviously much more dangerous than the other especially when driving. Miley is finding her own way and trying new things – i like the way she is turning out. She comes across as someone who knows what she wants and is not afraid to be herself.

    We as a society have a responsibility to those we care about that are young that are stars. Even those we dont care about.
    Miley Cyrus: You have a lot of power because you have a lot of money. All that means is that you can get away with saying and dong things that a lot of other people cant. Does not mean that you will end up with all of loving you . You may not care about that but you need to care about you loving you. If I were your mother I would tell you , First I love you, and then remember to be humble. Remember where you come from. Remember youre no better than anyone else. Ive watched you grow and I hope the best for you. Good luck sweetie.

      Her Dad did tell her that - you see where that got him. Her Mom is too busy riding the gravy train.
