Brad Pitt gives thumbs up for U.S. President Barack Obama for not putting pot prosecution as top priority.
Pitt and his fellow The House I Live In executive producers Danny Glover, John Legend and Russell Simmons released a joint statement saying, “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.”
