Brad Pitt has made it no secret that he believes drugs should be legalized and at the screening for his new documentary, "The House I Live In," he spoke his mind on exactly what he thinks, and didn't hold back.
In a small theater, Pitt introduced the director Eugene Jarecki and 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. 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 film takes a look at what President Richard Nixon coined "the war on drug abuse" in 1972 and examines how things have exploded by then. It also happens to be executively produced by our very own Russell Simmons!
That means it's worth the watch!
We love seeing celebs stand up for what they believe in! Go Brad!
