In need of some herbal refreshments, ladies?
Self proclaimed "stoner" Miley Cyrus was spotted leaving a medical marijuana dispensary with a friend the other day, but the former Disney star was still in legal territory!
Under California law, the possession and cultivation of cannabis is legal for patients who possess a "written or oral recommendation" from their physician that he or she "would benefit from medical marijuana," and are legally protected under this act.
The singer has "sparked" much controversy over her use of the green stuff after she was caught on video announcing to pals at her 19th birthday party last year, “You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f—ing weed!”
Cyrus was also caught on tape smoking salvia, a legal hallucinogen, from a bong at a friend's house, but she's continued to deny smoking marijuana. BFF Kelly Osbourne has even rushed to the star's defense, Tweeting, "if Miley isn’t recording/filming/touring, she works every day. How could she possibly do all that if she was a stoner?”
Miley is legally allowed to accompany her pal into the dispensary's waiting room, but would not be permitted inside the actual dispensary without a valid medical marijuana card.
This Sherman Oaks dispensary is listed on WheresWeed.com as selling an ounce of Indica "Og Kush" for $280. Hey, pastimes of the rich and famous!
Since 1996, 16 states have legalized the sale and use of a contained amount of medical marijuana, including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, DC, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.
