Legalize Marijuana Billboard Goes Up Near Mile High Stadium

| by Michael Allen

Colorado’s Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol unveiled a new billboard (picture below) on Thursday just blocks away from Mile High Stadium and Mile High Liquors in Denver, Colorado.

The group said on its website that the location was best because it will force those with alcohol addiction to confront their bias toward marijuana users

The billboard shows a smiling woman with her arms folded, next to the text: “For many reasons, I prefer… marijuana over alcohol. Does that make me a bad person? RegulateMarijuana.org.”

Betty Aldworth, advocacy director for the campaign, said: “That’s what we want to talk to Coloradans right now. We’re trying to educate them about why it is that marijuana is safer than alcohol. If you look at every objective study comparing the safety of the two, you’ll see that marijuana is clearly safer than alcohol.”
