A Message to Cannabis Loyalists from Captain America

When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — “No, you move.” — Captain America, "Amazing Spider-Man #537"

Captain America says this to Spider-Man in Amazing Spider-Man #537, published in 2006. A similar version of the quote appears in the 2016 movie Captain America: Civil War, but the lines are spoken by the character Sharon Carter, not by Captain America.

But he certainly could have said this to cannabis loyalists, legacy operators, true believers, and anyone who fights the stigma against cannabis, fights the prohibitionists, fights the reefer madness rhetoric.

Fight on, people!
