Denver vs. Seattle -- The Super ‘Marijuana’ Bowl?



Text  



McClatchy:

If oddsmakers are correct, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will win Sunday’s National Football League conference championship games, advancing to a truly historic Super Bowl on Feb. 2:

The Marijuana Bowl? A return of the Bud Bowl?

The teams represent the biggest cities in Colorado and Washington, the only states that have legalized the sale of recreational marijuana.

Shortly after those voters made their decisions in November 2012, travel guide Arthur Frommer said both cities should brace for “a torrent of new tourism.” Now the two cities might face off in one of the world’s biggest sporting extravaganzas, giving the media a fresh story hook for the next two weeks.

Pot backers are tickled.

Imagine what a Doritos commercial might do to an at-home Super Bowl party in Denver or Seattle. It could be chaos.
