Brad Pitt has opened up about the federal government’s war on drugs, and calls it an ‘incredible failure’ to the Huffington Post. He says, “My drug days are long since passed but it's certainly true that I could probably land in any city in any state and get you whatever you wanted. I could find anything you were looking for. Give me 24 hours or so, and yet we still support this charade called the drug war."
Pitt has mentioned that he was smoking a lot of weed when married to Jennifer Aniston, but has also admitted that with his new life and children, he doesn’t have the time or the desire to smoke anymore. He adds, “We have spent a trillion dollars. It's lasted for over 40 years. A lot of people have lost their lives for it. And yet we still talk about it like it's this success. The only way to end the war on drugs is to take the profit out of it…we have to look at the what-if-everything-was-legal and people were allowed to make their own choices.”
Pitt was introducing a documentary based on the war on drugs, which he produced, when it premiered on Friday night. Pitt has been an outspoken proponent of legalizing drugs for a long time, mentioning time and time again that legalizing drugs is the right solution.
