On Friday, Feb. 15, 2019 Billy Ray Cyrus shared a photo of his wife, Tish Cyrus, with a vault stuffed with bags of weed.
Yes! Like I said Tish Cyrus.... my how the times they are a changing #CrAzYMaMa
The photos drew criticism from some commenters.
Tish Cyrus commented on the photo on Instagram, explaining that the weed is not hers and the photo wasn't taken in her house.
"First of all ... my husband @billyraycyrus is INSANE," Tish Cyrus wrote. "Second, this picture is also insane, and third this is NOT my weed or my house. Hahah. But if it was, that would be amazing for so many reasons!"
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus are the parents of singer Miley Cyrus. Entertainment Tonight reports that during an appearance on Andy Cohen's Sirius XM channel Radio Andy, Miley Cyrus discussed her mom's marijuana use.
"My mom is gonna kill me, but yeah, my mom smokes a lot of weed, " Miley Cyrus said. "No, she probably won't care. She's gonna be like, 'Well, I've been wanting to do a weed company, so you've got me started. I'll get you in, don't worry.'"
In 2019, the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer shared another photo of Tish with a bouquet with weed inside.
Of course, Billy Ray Cyrus wouldn't be the first country star to declare his love for weed. Willie Nelson has been an outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
"If we made everything legal we would save a whole lotta money, a whole lotta lives," Nelson told The Guardian in 2012. "If we taxed and regulated the drugs the way they do in other parts of the world, we would be far better off, I think."
Nelson even started his own cannabis brand, Willie's Reserve. The country legend launched Willie's Remedy Whole Bean Coffee, coffee infused with CBD oil sourced from Colorado. CBD oil is non-intoxicating and the coffee doesn't include THC, the compound that causes a high.
