Brad Pitt shares his views on America’s war on drugs, and he also shares some “moments” from the days when he was high as a kite.

According to USA Today:

During a Friday night screening of The House I Live In, a documentary about the war on drugs, which he produced, Pitt got candid about his use of and access to drugs back in the day.

On his own drug use: “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.”

Why he thinks the “war on drugs” has failed: “The drug war is actually being used to hold a portion of our society down. It’s staggering to me what is being perpetrated in this name of a war on … immorality. It’s criminal in itself. And we’ve got to look at that. We have to change that.”

How to end the drug war: “The only way to end the war on drugs is to take the profit out of it. I know this comes with a whole other host of problems and I don’t know if I’m actually presenting it as a reality, but we have to look at the what-if-everything-was-legal and people were allowed to make their own choices. And we were treating it less as a criminal issue and more as a sickness. People do drugs to escape. We’re not talking about experimentation. People with long-term drug use are escaping.”

Of course Brad used to be a druggie. He’s married to Angelina Jolie for heaven’s sake.
