Brad Pitt talks drugs

2012-10-14 21:25

Los Angeles - Brad Pitt has confessed he still knows how to get any drug he wants.

The 48-year-old father-of-six - who opened up about his former marijuana habit earlier this year - said he no longer uses drugs but is confident he would have no problem getting his hands on anything he wanted within 24 hours.

The Killing Them Softly actor said: ''My drugs 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.''

Brad was speaking to the audience at a Los Angeles screening for the new hard-hitting documentary he executive produced called The House I Live In about the war on drugs on Friday, according to the Huffington Post.

He said: ''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.''

Earlier this year, the Moneyball star revealed he once used drugs as a way to escape the pressures of fame and this led to his battle with depression.

He said: ''I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s: I was hiding out from the celebrity thing; I was smoking way too much dope; I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut; and I really got irritated with myself.

''I used to deal with depression, but I don't now, not this decade - maybe last decade.

''I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep - the same routine: Couldn't wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, 'This is a waste.'''

    Sad thing is that anyone can get drugs anytime. 1 hour would be more than enough time.

    Cocaine is a sign you are earning too much

    Couple of hundred years ago when the entertains started out, the "profession" was one of the lowest, insignificant jobs you could have. No one was revered, or earned any kind of money whatsoever. Today the acting fraternity think the world could not survive without them. I would not be proud to tell the world that I had to escape from fame taking drugs. Quit your job like everyone else, but I presume the money and the perks are much appreciated. I wish the 21st century people would stop hanging onto there every words, outside of the make-believe environment of the movies, and see them for what they are, spoilt, overpaid people that actually contribute nothing but an hour of two of MAKE-BELIEVE.

    How can any responsible parent not desire a saner drug policy, and one that’s based on facts rather than reefer madness? Prohibition guarantees that many illegal drugs are far easier for our children to procure than even alcohol or nicotine. That's because, even though these are both very dangerous and addictive drugs, they are at least sold in properly controlled and regulated environments. Under our present regime, certain plants/concoctions/drugs are sold only by criminals and terrorists; the huge black-market profits are used to threaten innocent civilians, bribe law enforcement officials, and buy support from unconscionable politicians; the availability and usage rates tend to go up, not down, and our prisons have become filled to capacity with easily replaced vendors and smugglers —this list of dangerous and negative consequences is actually endless. To continue prohibition is ludicrous, and those of us who can't see that by now, must be either severely and mentally challenged or using something far stronger than any of us have even heard of. Why on earth should we be willing to whack ourselves with ever-bigger and more-repressive prohibition hammers, while drug use and availability keep going up, not down, and while we all plunge deeper into Loserville? Prohibition is the most destructive, dysfunctional, dishonest and racist social policy since Slavery. Prohibition is a holocaust in slow motion. We MUST end it NOW!
