What is Salvia? Miley Cyrus' Alleged Pipe-Drug Has Effects Similar to LSD!

In a video of Miley posted today, the 18-year-old smokes an herb known as Salvia. What is it?

Miley Cyrus is laughing uncontrollably in a new video of her smoking out of a bong, and now we know why she had a fit of the giggles. The drug that Miley was allegedly smoking in the video obtained by TMZ is called Salvia, and it’s usually compared to LSD for its hallucinogenic effects. Unlike LSD which is chemically engineered, Salvia is found naturally in a plant but both drugs contain the same main ingredient: salvinorin A.

Miley is giggly and goofy in the newly leaked footage, but that’s because Salvia is known to induce laughter, sensations of motion, visions of membranes, and sometimes causes one to revisit past memories. Unlike LSD, the effects of which last for up to 12 hours, Salvia’s typically last for a few minutes at a time.

There is not very much known about Salvia which is why it remains legal in most states. Even though Salvia isn’t regulated under the Controlled Substances Act, some states, including Delaware, Louisiana, Missouri, and Ohio, have passed laws to ban the drug. Other states like New York, Michigan, Oregon, Texas, Florida and Miley’s current hometown of California have proposed legislation to make Salvia illegal.

I’m 28 and I’ve never done a drug in my life. I hardly drink even for that fact. So no, not everyone has tried drugs once in their life. If so I guess I’m the only one who hasn’t tried it. Yes Salvia is legal, but that doesn’t make it right to do it. There could be a lot of long term affects in the long run, all though there are no affects right now. Anyway, I hope if she just tried it, then okay move on and worry about your career. Cause otherwise she is going to lose her fans which are mostly little girls who look up to her. They’re parents have most likely heard of the video and are probably already throwing out her music. I’m disappointed in her, but what can she do, but learn from her mistake and move on. I’m more disappointed that she had it video taped or her friend video taped it. I think she was trying to make a quick buck and was just jealous of Miley and her fame. That is my opinion. I hope Miley will rise from this and get back on track. And not be another Lindsey Lohan.

Sure you have, you just don’t know what drugs are. If you ever took an aspirin, you used drugs. Birth control pills…dangerous drugs! Medicine from the doctor? Some of the worst drugs known to man. How sad that people aren’t able to think for themselves and, instead, let some ‘idiots’ (you might call them experts) tell them what is or isn’t good for them.

Why do people (fans) “look up to her”? She’s just another typical girl growing up too fast in a screwed up world. Did you know that ‘fan’ is short for FANATIC? People need to get a life…their OWN life!

Small kids don’t need to look up to maturing teens who were ONCE children but now want to be adults. Let them find other kids who are kids and want to be kids. Talent is overrated and fans are nothing more than idol worshipers. What’s wrong with that picture?

Um, LSD does not contain salvinorin, you dolts. Not even close. Why not do a little research before writing a story?

if you’re gonna smoke, smoke weed. I don’t support it, but it’s a hell of a lot safer than anything synthetic. I can’t believe stuff like this is still legal. Synthetic THC can cause death, and if not death emotional scars for life. Personally, I couldn’t care less what Miley Cyrus is up to in her spare time. We’ve all done it — most of us have probably done a lot worse. I just felt that I should share a bit of knowledge from my personal experience.

salvia is NOT synthetic, it’s a plant, just like your weed!

But, yes, by all means, let’s make all substances illegal that might cut into organized crime’s sales of drugs and the legal drug pushers approved by the FDA (you know, Big Pharma).

Knowledge is the one thing lacking in society today. People have been lied to for so long that they don’t know high from low…or right from wrong.

I really doubt that she was smoking salvia. Her behavior was classic marijuana stoner behavior, and real salvia users say the effect of salvia is nothing like what Miley displayed. Her publicity people have done a fantastic job of misdirecting people away from the obvious truth.

Salvia isn’t a new drug, it’s an herb that’s been around likely much longer than we have. It’s also really quite different than LSD. But I wouldn’t expect a site like this to know much about anything.

Salvia is legal in California, which is where she smoked it. So why does anyone even care? Because she’s not a saint? Because she’s not the perfect role model? She’s a teenager, and she’s allowed to have fun. I’m proud of her for having the guts to try it, knowing the likely repercussions it would have in the media. Is every gossip site going to freak out when she turns 21 and drinks alcohol?

So, I wonder…how many drugs do you take EVERYDAY? You know, the ones that the doctor prescribes…and calls medicine.

To be honest, drugs are only chemicals and they are found in every substance, including food. In fact, even water could be considered a drug.

No, drugs aren’t bad. They are VITAL to life and even poisonous drugs have their purpose. Just like the song says, “To every drug there is a purpose under heaven.”

Salvia is a brand new drug that is being researched for its safety. As of now, researchers have found that there is no major harm done when using the drug.

Salvia has been used by ancient shamans for thousands of years, every pharmaceutical drug on the market is ten times newer than it.

There is no Salvinorin A in LSD whatsoever. They are completely different chemical compounds.

@Correction, didn’t you know that misinformation is HollywoodLIfe.com’s only reason for existence? @MsMadScientist, Salvia is a naturally occurring herb in the southern part of Mexico, not a “new drug.” You are about as accurate as Hollywoodlife.com, meaning not at all.

This article is factually incorrect. LSD and Salvia are completely different drugs that work on different parts of the brain.

Salvinorin A has no action at the 5-HT2A serotonin receptor, the principal molecular target responsible for the actions of ‘classical’ psychedelics such as LSD and mescaline.

LSD typically lasts at least 8 hours with moderate dose.
Salvia typically lasts about 30 minutes at most.

Just because you report gossip doesn’t mean you should be a sloppy journalist.
