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.


As medical marijuana continues to gain ground across the US, more and more colleges are adding cannabis to their curriculum. In fact, more than half of America's pharmaceutical schools (62 percent) now teach students about medical marijuana according to a new survey conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy. "With more states legalizing medical marijuana, student pharmacists must be prepared to effectively care for their patients who may use medical marijuana alone or in combination with prescription or over-the-counter medications," the study's authors wrote.
