    Cannot believe I beat both JCBRAVE and Titans Eternal to this one.

    With the legalization of marijuana in Colorado (And Washington) a Colorado pro-marijuana group is using tonight's season opener to advance their cause. And with the eyes of the NFL world on Denver, CO the group Marijuana Policy Project will take advantage by having a sign near the game:

    The 14-by-48-foot (4.3-by-14.6-meter) sign along the main boulevard leading to Denver's Sports Authority Field at Mile High calls on the league to "Stop Driving Players to Drink - A Safer Choice is Now Legal (Here)," referring to Colorado's recent legalization of recreational marijuana.

    In every state that's legalized marijuana, traffic fatalities have decreased.

    I'd site sample size issues with that until A) More states have legalized it and B) It's been legal for more then a year or two
