Pro vs Anti: The Super Bowl Side Game

The fact that the two teams in the Super Bowl are both from states that have legalized marijuana has certainly sparked the imagination of the legalization camp.  The MPP has purchased billboards making their case.  Now it seems the game is on with word that the SAM anti-legalization group has countered.  It's hard to imagine how the late-night comics could have asked for a better set up.  But the battle may actually be more important than some believe.  The attention the Super Bowl gets, and the obvious stories about legalization that we'll continue to hear will likely help to nationalize the debate.  Rarely discussed is that fact that Super Bowl Sunday is known to be one of the heaviest days for DUI-related crashes.  So as sports fans drink, socialize, and view countless beer ads, they'll also be asked to consider public policy on marijuana.
