The NFL is set to kick off Thursday night in uncharted territory - a state where it's now legal to smoke marijuana. So it's perhaps no surprise that in Denver, the NFL is taking heat for its ban on marijuana — in the form of a billboard next to Sports Authority Field at Mile High just before the Broncos season opener. CBS4 in Denver reports that the billboard is paid for by the Marijuana Policy Project, which argues that because marijuana is legal in Colorado and Washington the NFL shouldn't punish any player across the country for using it. "Here in Colorado, where voters have said marijuana should be legal it was really the perfect venue to convey this message," said group spokesman Mason Tvert.
