Miley Cyrus under police investigation for smoking joint on stage

But not because it was a joint. Because it was a no-smoking room.

MILEY CYRUS IS facing an investigation by Dutch after apparently smoking a joint on stage in Amsterdam.

But not because it did (or didn’t) contain illegal substances. Just because it may have broken a smoking ban.

Dutch authorities have launched an investigation into whether the ban was violated after Cyrus lit up during the MTV EMAs.

“We received complaints about smoking which was also seen on television. We have to investigate,” Tjitte Mastenbroek of the National Food and Consumer Authority (NVWA) told AFP yesterday.

“We will shortly be meeting the Ziggo Dome’s management to check what exactly happened there,” he said.

After accepting the Best Video award for her hit single Wrecking Ball, Cyrus took what seemed to be a half-smoked joint out of her Chanel bag and lit it up.

Mastenbroek said the consumer watchdog was investigating why Cyrus lit up in a smoke-free area.

There is a smoking ban in public places in the Netherlands. Employees have the right to a smoke-free environment and this includes camera and sound personnel.

Ziggo Dome spokesman Danni Damman said the venue had a strict non-smoking policy and security personnel would ask any smoker not in a designated area to put out a cigarette at once.
