A lot of people -- So the problem. And that's make a blow against drugs without making unwise things people. Familiar voice of Morgan Freeman there and a familiar man soon to be to many people out there -- brands and joining us -- talk for the stock very extreme with us today.

I own -- sun dog we -- -- the price it was tucked Savoy which had to -- -- and telephone the tag. This is -- second big projects we've. Got a few things in the -- not probably went Cecile let -- well as an evening that's. Let's say -- I think we're breaking -- there and I think -- -- to be -- -- that on its fastening and it really is like he says something that has been. Decades probably in need of being told and it's obviously narrated by Morgan Freeman -- -- any kind of hesitations from him we're getting other people to sign on board. I'm not -- I think I think you know this is an an issue that's affecting millions of people -- mostly around the world times the best -- story was. When we send little -- in the -- mosque in -- rates. He -- a one line response which isn't lost voices of reason. Count me and relay and now and I'm rice not Sony said in any did -- -- -- does he really believes in the subjects and and I think what. It's so easy to get coop in the fight to Stotts this -- really.
