Ah, the wonders of celebrity opinion and knowledge…
Knows no bounds!
What would we do, after all…
Without celebrities around to tell us?
Which drugs are good (mmm, mmm!), and which drugs are (ew) bad!
[via Jezebel]Miley Cyrus Says Cocaine is ‘Gross,’ Her Heart Belongs to Weed ~Lindy West
Welp, Miley Cyrus went ahead and ranked all the drugs from “the best” to “ew,” with cocaine at the bottom and weed at the top. Not a bad assessment, really, if you’re going to draw up a what-drugs-should-I-do schematic.
The 20-year-old “We Can’t Stop” singer, who once said she was “disappointed” in herself for getting caught smoking salvia, now has no problems talking about her recreational drug use. In new outtakes from her recent Rolling Stone interview (which accompanied her topless cover shoot), the ex-child star raves that “weed is the best drug on earth,” especially compared to cocaine. MDMA — a.k.a. Molly — also gets a big thumbs up from the former Hannah Montana actress.
“One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon,” Cyrus tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells. “Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And Molly, too. Those are happy drugs — social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You’re out in the open. You’re not in a bathroom.”
She then laid the funniest burn on coke that I have ever heard.
“I really don’t like coke. It’s so gross and so dark. It’s like, what are you, from the ’90s? Ew.”
Don’t know about you…
But I am ever so glad Miley Cyrus is around, to be such a sterling role model for children everywhere!
She is just amazing, is she not?
Providing such USEFUL commentary on drugs, today…
By ‘telling’ kids which drugs they should do & not do by her fabulous ranking.
She is SUCH an inspiration.
Step away from the Miley and allow me to provide you with some REAL inspiration regarding drugs:
[via Gawker]Flesh-Eating Drug Krokodil Finally Shows Up in the US ~Lacey Donohue
Krokodil, already a popular drug in Russia, has finally made its way to the United States. The Banner Poison Control Center in Arizona has reported two cases of the flesh-rotting drug’s use, believed to be the first in the US. The drug is a mixture of codeine and hydrocarbons like gasoline, paint thinner, or oil that is injected directly into veins. It’s named krokodil because once injected, it rots your skin from the inside out, causing an alligator skin-like appearance. It’s really, really gross. You probably want to avoid the YouTube videos.
Dr. Frank LoVecchio, the co-medical director at Banner’s Poison Control Center, said, “we’re extremely frightened.” He elaborates on the flesh-eating drugs that often sell for ten to 20 times less than the cost of heroin:
“They cause damage to the blood vessels damage to the tissue and there are horrific pictures from Russia that show skin literally falling off the bone.”
He also believes the two cases in Arizona are related, but wouldn’t say more except to add, “Where there is smoke there is fire, and we’re afraid there are going to be more and more cases.”

Do. Not. Do. Them!
All drugs are bad, and they pretty much all end?
In horrible, horrible things for you.
Stay away from drugs.
And yes, while you are at it?
Just go ahead and stay away from the twit Miley Cyrus too.
