This is like the end of the second act of an animated kids movie about a group of kids who befriend a lonely bear, only to have it captured by mean adults (who secretly just want to not let the bear eat the kids)!
All that's left is the third act, where the kids beat the school officials at their own game and break the bear out of bear prison and release him back into the wild! LOLz!
Back to reality though - in Montclair, NJ all outdoor activities were suspended because a black bear was seriously just stalking delicious children!
Not only is bear bile farming totally disgusting, but it's extremely torturous to the bears!

Well, Miley, marijuana isn’t exactly legal in California unless you have a prescription, so we’re not entirely sure what you mean. But, okay...
As for her transition from Disney teen idol to mature pop star, she said:
