Melissa Gilbert: ‘Miley Cyrus Was Smoking Pot’

Melissa Gilbert may have grown up in a time without camera phones and the 24-hour news cycle, but she’s in the camp that believes Miley Cyrus knew exactly what she was doing when she allowed a friend to videotape her smoking from a bong recently.

“These days, everyone with a cellphone is a paparazzo,” Gilbert told AOL News. “How high do you have to be to let a friend film you? I think she wanted to get caught.”

The former star of ‘Little House on the Prairie’ and spokeswoman for The Partnership at DrugFree.org thinks Cyrus is being too reckless after smoking salvia … or whatever it was that got her so loopy that night.

“That’s bull—-!” Gilbert said. “I think it was marijuana.”

The 46-year old actress who played Laura Ingalls Wilder on the famed 1970s television show doesn’t think Cyrus is the ultimate problem child, but still thinks kids need to look at this incident as a valuable lesson about drug abuse.

“Hopefully, these kids in the public eye like Cyrus and Heath Ledger are cautionary tales,” Gilbert said.

You know… she’s probably right. You can follow Melissa on Twitter.

    That’s what’s called a “breakthrough” dose of salvia divinorum. Within seconds of ingestion, Miley experienced uncontrollable laughter (all through the video), overlapping or altered realities (when she thought a guy was a look-a-like for her boyfriend, or that he was present, or that she was not present, ect), and glossolalia (random gibberish she thought were words).

    Marijuana’s effects take longer to kick in, are much more subtle, and last much longer.

    But of course, Melissa Gilbert knows all of this. She is a drug user, and spent years enjoying recreational intoxicants. She is also a hypocrite, knowingly lying in order to please the people who write her paychecks.

    Gilbert is not offering her personal opinion or relating her personal experiences. You’ll have to buy her book to get a glimpse of that.

    Instead she is just doing her job as a paid spokesperson, and her job is to say whatever is necessary to justify the war on drugs. She is not paid to be honest. Talking about the “evils” of doing drugs has been her job since she was 17 years old and out of work after Little House was canceled.
