Marijuana Superbowl: It Really Could Happen

By: Daryl Nelson - January 19, 2014

With the Denver Broncos beating the New England Patriots 26-16, and making their way to this year’s Superbowl, some are hoping the team faces the Seattle Seahawks. And why? Because if the two teams meet, the game will be known as the Marijuana Superbowl, since Colorado and Washington have become the first two states to legalize recreational marijuana use.

Some who champion the use of cannabis say a Marijuana Bowl would be the perfect message to send to the NFL, since the league has a strong reputation of linking itself to alcohol brands, namely beer.

Mason Tvert, who’s the official spokesman for the Marijuana Project in Denver, says he’s dying to see a Superbowl between the Broncos and the Seahawks, and hopefully the NFL will replace some of the beer ads with pot ads, he says.

“Hopefully there will be a break in the beer commercials for some discussion about marijuana laws,” he stated. In addition, Tvert says the tides in the U.S. are turning nowadays, to the point where most cities that have an NFL team will have legal marijuana use. “It won’t be long before it’s unique to have two teams in the Super Bowl that haven’t made marijuana legal,” he said.

Steve Fox, a lawyer who works for a firm that deals in the pot industry, says some who are pro marijuana have been anticipating this type of match up for quite a while. “It’s something that those of us in the movement have had an eye on for a long time,” he said.

Plus, Fox believes that the green stuff has something to do with other teams not playing well, like the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins. Although it’s hard to understand how he came up with this conclusion.

“If you noticed, the more marijuana-friendly localities really kicked butt,” he said. “I don’t know what it really means in the grand scheme of things, but it’s a nice bit of karma if nothing else.”

    Saying marijuana leads to hard drugs is like saying marijuana legalization leads to NFL divisional championships. No causal relationship, go Hawks!

    “Spliffer Bowl” … you heard it here first.

    They attack us. Time to return the favor.

    Prohibitionists think we should lose our freedom family & fortune because of pot; and feel we should be OK with them thinking that.

    Prohibitionists especially the intelligentsia can’t imagine they were lied to and have been wrong all their lives

    Prohibitionists think that the Legalization crowd are the ones that are lying.

    Prohibitionists are condescending judgementalists – every perceived personality flaw they see; is somehow related to pot.

    Prohibitionists will be lumped in with the temperance league when it comes to smarts. Only they will be considered even stupider. The temperance league were right on a few points. Like violence and physical damage

    Prohibitionists are afraid of legalization because when they don’t toke up with their friends; they will know that they were talking behind their backs and were Judgmental Condescendings

    Prohibitionists are terrified at the possibility that Pot is a (performance / life) enhancing herb. They do like the falsehood that Pot dumbs peoples senses

    Prohibitionists are sure they know more about Cannabis than someone that has spent their whole life with the Marijuana plant.

    Prohibitionists will say there are downsides to everything. “NAME THEM” I bet you can’t name any.

    Prohibitionists try and switch the topic to other drugs when they don’t have a leg to stand on when discussing pot.

    Prohibitionists have no heroes (witness Ted Cruz) just liars, fibbers and stupid’s. Our side has thousands of heroes. Marc Emery is my favorite

    Prohibitionists think everyone that doesn’t agree with them is trolling
