Her omnipresent grin is how Miley Cyrus got her name, and now that the teen star is officially an adult, some video footage of her getting really smiley with some friends, and a bong, is the subject of scuttlebutt, thanks to the omnipresent gossip hounds of TMZ.

Just a few days after her 18th birthday, Cyrus was caught on tape by "a friend" smoking from a bong. "In the video, Miley is seen giggling and at one point says she's having 'a little bit of a bad trip,'" summarizes KTLA. TMZ thinks they got a stolen copy of the video, which was shot by a friend.

Of course, claims a "source connected with Miley," the actress and singer isn't tainting her lungs with marijuana. They say "the smoke filling the bong is a natural herb called salvia which has psychedelic qualities," and, luckily, salvia is legal here in California. So is salvia the current cool drug of choice with young Hollywood? Uh huh. Sure.
