Marijuana: Project SAM, anti-legalization group, launches Colorado chapter, Mason Tvert attacks

A national organization that opposes the legalization of marijuana and is advocating "smarter approaches" launched today in Denver -- and also announced that the group will soon open a chapter in Colorado, where voters in November passed Amendment 64. The advocates behind the group, called Project SAM, talked at length about the dangers of marijuana usage and legalization but had few details about what the group would be doing in Colorado.
