Matthew McConaughey's 'March For Our Lives' Speech Quoted Wooderson From 'Dazed And Confused'

Actor Matthew McConaughey rehashed the wisdom of his character Wooderson from the iconic stoner comedy 'Dazed and Confused' during today's 'March for Our Lives' event in Austin, Texas.

“This is an American issue,"  he said while addressing the rally against gun violence at the Texas legislature. "It’s a Texan issue. It’s a legal and law-abiding gun owner issue. It’s a mother issue. It’s a father issue. And, quite literally, this is our children’s issue. My hope here is that we can find a common ground on what I see as a very much a common-sense issue. This is an issue anchored in purpose for all of us. It’s not anchored in politics."

"God bless and just keep living,” he added, quoting the mantra of Wooderson - the character that made McConaughey famous 25 years ago.


Late last year, Michigan became the first midwestern state to legalize adult recreational cannabis use. Unfortunately, Michigan is still figuring out the rules for recreational cannabis sales, which means you can’t actually purchase any yet. While those rules are expected by June, a new report paints a rosy picture of the future of legal recreational cannabis in Michigan and the midwest.
