News » Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Billboard Catches Attention
April 6, 2012 by justin
Colorado’s Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol unveiled a new billboard Thursday next to the Mile High Stadium in Denver. The sign 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.”
“That’s what we want to talk to Coloradans right now,” Betty Aldworth, advocacy director for the campaign, said on Friday. “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.”
The billboard is also right next to Mile High Liquors. The group says that the location was optimal because it will force some drinkers to confront their bias toward marijuana users. It was also a good deal, too: the sign only cost $5,000.
