Mark Ruffalo Just Came Out As Pro-Cannabis On Twitter

Sometimes, the smallest gesture goes a long way. Mark Ruffalo is somehow both a prolific actor and Twitter user—we thought that when we saw his tweet last week where he took a pro-cannabis stance.

Now, this isn’t a game-changing tweet by any means. Because we’ve experienced many celebrities jumping aboard the pro-cannabis bandwagon as of late, but only offering simple comments like, “Yeah I think they should legalize it.”

It helps, but doesn’t educate people on the financial and health benefits of legalizing cannabis. So Ruffalo—an Avenger, no less—tweeting “grow cannabis” in reference to a Washington Post that promotes “[l]egalizing marijuana nationwide would create at least 132 billion in tax revenue and more than a million new jobs” is a comment that makes an impact. It also isn’t the first time Ruffalo has publicly stood on the pro-cannabis side.

He also once told a funny anecdote on the Graham Norton Show about accidentally smoking marijuana on stage. Without naming names, Ruffalo mentions a “young actor” replacing a fake prop joint with a real one on stage, and Ruffalo inhaled it good.
