Brad Pitt: Gay Marriage and Drug Laws Should Not be Discussed Simultaneously
At Monday's "Killing Them Softly" premiere, MTV News asked Brad Pitt to weigh in on the results of the election, including some states' legalization of marijuana and gay marriage. After reiterating his long-standing support of equal marriage rights -- "Equality, absolutely, that's what defines us. It's what makes us great," -- he sounded off on the fact that drug laws have nothing to do with marriage laws.
"I do believe that we should be responsible for our own choices in talking about the drug laws, and that the drug war is an ultimate failure and that the billions and billions of dollars that we've committed to it, there's got to be a better way," he said. "But there's real damage to drugs; that is not the same as with gay marriage. Since the last round [of elections], they've been linked in every article. I find that curious." (MTV)
