Brad Pitt Weighs In On Obama Drug Policy

Posted Friday December 21, 2012 12:45 PM GMT

With so much going on in our nation these days, President Barack Obama has chosen to loosen up on marijuana prosecution, something Brad Pitt is commending.

The “Fight Club” stud teamed up with Russell Simmons, John Legend, and Danny Glover to release a statement encouraging the Commander-in-Chief to decriminalize pot.

"President Obama should be commended for expressing the will of the people in Colorado and Washington. Our jails are overburdened with nonviolent drug users in this country, too often serving harsher sentences than violent criminals.”

“This defies all common and economic sense. The President's statement reflects a saner and more sensible drug policy, and a step away from the decades long failed war on drugs."
