In light of Martin Luther King Jr. Day today, we wanted to remind cannabis consumers of one of MLK's most memorable and industry-applicable quotes:
“In any civilized society, it is every citizen’s responsibility to obey just laws. But at the same time, it is every citizen’s responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
Following U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to rescind the Cole memo, it's important for cannabis consumers to stand up for what they believe in. Write your representatives, get active in your community, and fight for what you believe is right.
The question as to whether or not Dr. King was a cannabis consumer is still unanswered. With that said, the war on weed is certainly a matter of civil rights. If he were still alive today, we'd be willing to bet he'd support the marijuana movement.
