Miley Cyrus Says Her Mom Convinced Her to Start Smoking Weed Again

The entire world was shocked when Miley Cyrus announced that she was no longer smoking weed. But the pop singer is apparently back to enjoying cannabis in her life, and she says she has a surprising person to thank for that.

Cyrus said in a new interview that she's back to using marijuana thanks to her mom. Apparently Miley's mom Tish Cyrus "smokes a lot of weed" and convinced her daughter to try it again. Cyrus says while she is using cannabis again, she won't use it while working as she did in the past.

"My mom got me back on it. When I’m just working I don’t think I function at my highest, most intelligent, most being-able-to-be-as-aware-and-as-present, so I don’t smoke when I work," Cyrus said.

Cyrus said her mother at one point considered quitting as the pop singer's manager to start her own marijuana farm.

"My dad’s got a farm and she’s like 'I’m just going to quit everything and grow,'" Cyrus said. "She’s my manager. So if my mom quits everything, that’s quitting me to go home and, like, grow weed.  Which doesn’t sound like the best idea. ... My mom could barely keep us alive. She's not going to grow pot." 

Cyrus is appearing as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend along with Mark Ronson, which is ironic since SNL is related to why she stopped using marijuana originally. She apparently had a nightmare that she got super stoned before hosting SNL and she died in the dream. So she gave up using marijuana.

Let's hope she doesn't go completely crazy like she did last time she was smoking weed.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
