Billy Ray CyrusBilly Ray Cyrus has an achy breaky heart after seeing his daughter Miley taking a bong hit and tripping out from the salvia herb.

And like any "good" parent, he took to Twitter to voice his sorrow and disappointment.

"Sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. Im so sad. There is much beyond my control right now."

There are so many things wrong with this tweet, starting with the fact that he tweeted about it at all! Why? What good could possibly come out of tweeting about your daughter smoking a drug that's said to be akin to LSD? Oh wait, if he tweets, he gets some more publicity, so I guess that's good ... for him anyway.

Then there's the fact that his first instinct is to remove any blame from himself when, hello, perhaps if he hadn't pushed his daughter into the spotlight and tried to ride on her career coattails for her whole life she wouldn't be resorting to such behavior.

Why don't you tweet about that Billy Ray? Instead he's begging for sympathy and playing "poor me" via Twitter. How about you get off Twitter and go help your daughter.

She is 18, and no parents can't control every move teenagers make, but when you have micromanaged every aspect of your daughter's life until now, you can't just all of a sudden say, "oops sorry, not my fault."

Beyond Billy Ray, perhaps the most disturbing thing about this whole incident is all the publicity this drug is getting, especially the fact that it's legal in many states Teenagers everywhere are likely clamoring to get their hands on salvia so they can  have as much fun as Miley.

But legal or not, the consensus seems to be it's not safe.  According to the Drug Enforcement Agency's website, "due to salvia's hallucinogenic effects, there is a substantial risk of injury or death as a result of impaired judgment due to disruptions of sensory and cognitive functions."

Anti-salvia campaigns have already begun. Perhaps Billy Ray can lead the charge.
