Was it because she believes that marijuana should be legal worldwide? Did she want to take a stand and tell the world what a healing, wonderful plant pot is?

Sadly no, this is not the reason Cyrus lit up a J onstage at the EMA in Amsterdam. The actual reason is much more pathetic, stunted and Miley-centric:
"I just did it mostly 'cause I knew the fans in Amsterdam would love it. And I knew that the whole place would go super wild. Some people just over think so much. ... It's just not something I think about. I was just was walking out of my room and then I was like 'oh I have this in my bag. That will be really funny. I didn’t say anything to anybody. And I didn’t tell anyone I was going to do it."
We wish we were surprised by the wholly unenlightened statement above. We're not.
