Miley Cyrus Causes Boost in Salvia Sales

By: The Superficial / December 13, 2010

“Camera people, halt! — I want to touch your souls.”

When a video of Miley Cyrus smoking a bong allegedly containing salvia – a legal herbal hallucinogenic – hit the web many people responded with, “What’s the big deal? This is what 18-year-olds do.” Except most 18-year-olds don’t sit on the throne of a billion dollar franchise buoyed by impressionable young girls causing this to happen. Via TMZ:

According to people who deal, legally, in salvia divinorum … sales have increased since Friday — in some cases up to 3 times the usual tally.
TMZ spoke with several head shops in the Los Angeles area and we’re told — not only have sales jumped — but many of the customers specifically asked for “the stuff Miley was smoking.”

In the meantime, Miley is taking the whole thing in stride and apparently knew the video was out there which, in a way, proves she didn’t inhale and is a total poser:

Miley arrived in New Orleans last week to shoot “So Undercover” — and sources close to the production say hours after TMZ published the video of Miley taking bong hits … she showed up for rehearsals.
We’re told Miley and her co-star — Kelly Osbourne — ran through script lines, as scheduled, on Friday. According to our sources … Miley knew the bong video was out, but “she kept her focus on the movie.”

Jesus. 18 for barely two weeks and already her publicist is dusting this puppy off:

“The Lindsay”
Lindsay arrived in ______ last week to shoot _______ and sources close to the production say hours after _______ published ______ of Lindsay _______ she showed up for rehearsals.
We’re told Lindsay and her co-star — ________ — ran through script lines, as scheduled, on ______. According to our sources, Lindsay knew the _______ was out, but “she kept her focus on the movie.”

So for those of you who thinking, “Wow, this all sounds vaguely familiar…,” congratulations, you’re not crazy. High five!
