The Pop lifestyle is more than just music and fashion. The teenage idol formerly known as Hannah Montana is now much more famous for being a controversial Pop sensation. Miley Cyrus knows this very well. In recent years, Cyrus has been known for smoking marijuana. However, what made her wreck the ball and quit smoking weed?
In a recent interview, Miley Cyrus has opened her heart about her decision to stop smoking marijuana. She is hoping that her decision will prompt the youth to make healthy choices. This is coming from the idea that teens are the most at risk.
Miley Cyrus quitting marijuana will affect teens
Thus far, twenty-nine states in the US have legalized marijuana use, with West Virginia being the last one. On the other hand, even though marijuana use is gaining more legal status, that did not stop the pop star from her efforts to quit smoking weed. Cyrus, residing in Los Angeles, California, has purportedly been “clean” for ten weeks now.
59% of marijuana users in Los Angeles were teens under the age of 18. This is according to National Institute on Drug Abuse report from 2013/14. Given this fact, the hope is that Miley’s step towards recovery will positively affect teens.
What were a few Miley’s self-empowering steps
Hard as it might seem, initial steps that Cyrus took included finding inner strength and confidence, As a result, it led her to gain more energy along the way. Moreover, known for her stubborn and dynamic personality (she would humorously call herself “obsessive”), she decided to prove others that she can do things if she wants to. This enabled her to get more things done.
In addition, she strengthened her willpower much more than while she was on marijuana. As for the difference between being on and off marijuana, the Pop star states that she now has “clear, open eyes”. This should not come as a surprise, given the research conducted by the JAMA Ophthalmology in 2016. In the report, they examined abnormalities affecting eyesight and causing delays in vision induced by marijuana use.
In light of this decision to quit smoking weed, Miley re-touched base with her partner, Liam Hemsworth, and launched a fresh single, Malibu. On one hand, one of her mega hits says “we can’t stop”. On the other hand, Miley did hit the brakes and stopped her drug abuse problem.
