Those billboards were yanked, and the new billboard which has gone up carries the same message, but without the picture.

'We believe that if adults were provided with the alternative to use marijuana instead of alcohol, then we could cut back on quite a number of the incidents that occur,' marijuana use supporter Mason Tvert said.

Opponents say the group's entire ad campaign is deceptive, especially the Vote Yes yard signs that say 'Make Denver Safer.'" (more)
