Brad Pitt On Obama

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, December, 20th 2012 by THCFinder
Brad Pitt, John Legend, Russell Simmons, Danny Glover and filmaker Eugene Jarecki released joint statements in praise of President Barack Obama's evolution on the enforcement of marijuana legislation on Wednesday, agreeing with Obama's assertion that "we've got bigger fish to fry."
 
The president was discussing recreational marijuana use in Colorado and Washington, two states that legalized recreational pot use by adults.
 
Pitt and company -- executive producers of the Jarecki-directed film "The House I Live In" -- released the following statement:
 
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
 
"The House I Live In" is an award-winning documentary that urges reforms to drug laws, with a particular focus on sentencing. Jarecki himself released the following statement:
 
“I applaud Obama for respecting the people’s vote in Colorado and Washington. Many non-violent offenders have substance abuse problems that would be better served by public health policy solutions than excessively severe criminal justice approaches that have over forty years demonstrated their total wrongheadedness. We need to shift the paradigm for the war on drugs away from the ideology of ‘tough on crime’ toward being ‘smart on crime.’ This means a shift away from industrial mass incarceration of the nonviolent toward treatment, education, and rehabilitation.”
 
Though Obama told Barbara Walters he believes that "it would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it's legal," critics point to his administration's aggressive crackdown on California's medical marijuana industry as evidence the president's pot rhetoric doesn't always match Drug Enforcement Agency directives. Medical marijuana is legal under California law.

The 19-year-old daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus has been voted the 54th Top CelebStoner. Singer/actress Miley Cyrus swiftly earned her pro-pot reputation:
 
• For her 18th birthday in 2010, she smoked bong hits of salvia divinorum and got the giggles.
 
• At her 19th birthday party, she told a group (including Kelly Osbourne): "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much fuckin' weed." Osbourne calls her "Bob Miley."

Tommy Chong Speaks On Marijuana Legalization, Says He Thinks End Of DEA Is Near

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, December, 7th 2012 by THCFinder
"Cheech & Chong" comedian, actor and weed activist Tommy Chong is stoked that marijuana has been legalized in two states, and he says he believes this is just the beginning.
 
Chong appeared on Current TV's "The Young Turks" on Wednesday, where he said he believes the pro-pot movement has finally been revitalized. Chong said he thinks the legalization of marijuana in Washington state and Colorado will have a sweeping impact across the nation.
 
"It's gonna legalize hemp. It's also going to empty the jails and we're probably going to disband the DEA," he told Current TV. Adding, "Washington and Colorado, they're just the toe into the water. The whole body's following."
 
Chong is optimistic about the effects of legalization. "Marijuana enhances the creative ability of artists, that's well known," he told Current TV. "That goes all the way back to Rembrandt and Van Gogh, for instance... You wouldn't have a computer if it wasn't for pot." Adding, "These aren't guys that are smoking pot just to relax or to cure some medical ailment. These are guys that are smoking pot so they could get the ideas, the creative ideas, that pot creates. We wouldn't have had the Beatles."
 
The 74-year-old "Up in Smoke" star also spoke with NPR about how legalization will affect the pot subculture.
 
"Going to jail [as he has] and being arrested by cops and being hassled for having a plant, or smoking a plant, is never fun," he told NPR when asked if the fun is gone from the now-legal pot. "There's nothing glamorous ... that we're going to miss."
 
In 2003, Chong was targeted in the federal investigation "Operation Pipe Dreams" for selling drug paraphernalia and was eventually sentenced to nine months in prison, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
 
"The truth is, most potheads feel like it's legal anyway," he added to NPR. "That's where there's so many of us getting arrested everyday, because you're not doing anything wrong. You're smoking a flower."
