Video footage seen by Rolling Stone apparently shows at least eight assault weapons, rifles, and handguns lying around the living room, with some weapons propped up next to a pile of stuffed animals.
Their sources also allege frequent and heavy marijuana use in front of the children, with little concern about proper ventilation. Miller is said to run a cannabis farm on the property.
