Why Miley Cyrus Quit Weed

1 minute Read

Miley Cyrus has joined the ranks of celebrities who quit weed. Looks like she won’t be needing those 24-karat gold rolling papers she sold during her 2014 Bangerz tour.

“It’s very weird,” Cyrus said of her decision to lay off the reefer. “I’ve got a lot of energy.”

In an interview last month, the 24-year-old pop star said she hadn’t smoked in three weeks, which is the longest she’d ever gone without it. It seems she’s still going strong.

“At that point it was like three weeks, now it’s like nine weeks or ten weeks or something,” she said on Friday during a SiriusXM interview. Cyrus says she doesn’t need help staying sober, either.

“A lot of people have reached out to me and they’re like, ‘You know, if you want help or if you want to go to these meetings,’ and I’m like ‘No, when I want something, I can do it,'” she said. “Anything that I want to do, if I want to stop or start something, I can do anything. I just decided not to {smoke} anymore and now it’s easy for me.”

That doesn’t mean, however, she can’t be around weed. “I still roll fat joints for my friends,” Cyrus said. Though she says she likes to surround herself with those who make her “want to get better, more evolved, open.” But it’s not the people who get high, she admitted. She herself was feeling hazy.

“I want to be super clear and sharp because I know exactly where I want to be,” she said.

And not only has she quit weed, but she quit booze, too.

Cyrus’ squeaky clean sober lifestyle seems to go hand in hand with her most recent transformation from kandi kid raver who threw a weed-themed birthday party for her fiancĂ© Liam Hemsworth this past January to a more subdued, all grown up, Hannah Montana 2.0, portrayed in her most recent, folk-inspired album Malibu.

Originally, however, she said she was only quitting weed “for a second.” Still, it was easier for her to do it on her own accord, rather than having been influenced by anyone else. “If anyone told me not to smoke, I would have not done it,” she said. “It’s because it was on my time. I know exactly where I am right now. I know what I want this record to be.”
