Brad Pitt Loves Gay Marriage And Pot…Just Not Together

Equality, absolutely, that’s what defines us. It’s what makes us great. If it doesn’t sit well with your religion, let your God sort it out in the end, but that’s us. We’re equal. But what’s curious to me is how the two are always linked together. I don’t understand that. 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. I don’t believe in incarceration over education — anyways, don’t get me started. 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.”

Noted marriage equality supporter and renowned stoner Brad Pitt speaking with MTV News about the disparity between legalizing gay marriage and legalizing marijuana.

    I suppose we Washingtonians can take the blame for the current linkage of the two disparate issues, since both were on November’s ballot in our state.

    What he says here makes sense… As a strategy, linking the freedom to use cannabis for personal consumption to marriage equality is a loser. Each issue can stand on its own merits.

    It’s like the continual linking of being gay with being transgendered. Two totally different things that only serve to confuse the public.

    Its political reality. In the Southwest, gay marriage and immigration reform go hand in hand. Nothing much to do with each other except they are both hot button issues.

    It’s like gay marriage and contraception. There’s no real link.
