Marijuana Activists To Put Up Billboard Ads Near Superbowl Stadium in NJ

Will point out that marijuana is safer than alcohol and football


When the Denver Broncos face off against the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday, they will be representing the only two states in the nation to have legalized recreational marijuana sales—something activists hope to change soon. And they're renting out big billboards near the event to promote their cause.

Five billboards around New Jersey's MetLife Stadium will show ads promoting the drug as safer than either football or alcohol, the Marijuana Policy Project, which was deeply involved in getting pot legalized in Colorado, announced in a release.
