Wondering what noted marijuana enthusiast Miley Cyrus' typical stash looks like? Friend and Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has the answer: a small bushel. 

Sitting down with Billboard in Los Angeles, two days ahead of a Jan. 12 record release party for the band's latest album, Oczy Mlody, Coyne pulled out a photo of Cyrus holding a bag of pot big enough to keep a Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg co-headlining tour supplied for a month.

“This is what Miley Cyrus calls a bag of pot," says Coyne. "And this one of about five bags that they have [around] -- a f---ing giant, sealable bag, too. That much pot is still illegal!”

In its latest issue, Billboard explores the "reefer revolution" in depth, talking to 2 Chainz and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, documenting the creation of a record made of hash, and featuring a foreword written by Wiz Khalifa, who, Coyne recalls, "had three joints going at once" during a car ride with Cypress Hill's B-Real a couple years back.

In fact, of the cannabis connoisseurs, Coyne sees Khalifa as a formidable foe for his pal during a smoke-off. "Miley, because she’s young enough, gets to a point where it doesn’t really affect her," he says. "I would put my money on her just because she’s used to winning contests. Her competitive side kicks in. ... In fact, why don't you present that idea and we'll make it a smoke-off for charity?” 

The bud is in your court, Wiz.
