Stupor Bowl: What pot and football have in common

Source: | Stonerbowl

The Super Bowl has gone to pot.

Both teams playing in Sunday's big game—the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos—hail from states where recreational marijuana is now legal for people over 21. They are playing in New Jersey, a state slow to roll out a medical marijuana program, but one where at least one legislator wants to follow in the footsteps of Washington and Colorado. A variety of public opinion polls show most Americans now favor legalization.

Suddenly, the Super ... Bowl ... takes on a whole new meaning.
