via Press Release: The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol held a news conference today in front of a provocative new billboard located at 1660 Federal Blvd., just across from Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The unveiling of the billboard marked the launch of a statewide public education effort in support of the statewide ballot initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol, Amendment 64.
The billboard, which is hovering directly above a liquor store, features a woman stating: “For many reasons, I prefer marijuana over alcohol. Does that make me a bad person?” The campaign is also mobilizing an army of volunteers across the state to begin distributing corresponding flyers to voters in their communities.

“Every day, hundreds of thousands of Colorado adults make decisions about whether to use marijuana or alcohol,” said Betty Aldworth, advocacy director for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. “We are not suggesting that one is better than the other, but we are asserting that marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol.
“We want people to consider why they are opposed to allowing adults to legally use the less harmful of the two substances,” Aldworth said. “We are not telling people what to think. We are simply asking them to think.”
