Photos: Marijuana billboards ripping NFL's pot policy going up near Super Bowl stadium

This past September, the Marijuana Policy Project put up a billboard near Mile High Stadium criticizing the NFL's pot policy -- a gambit that echoed past efforts by Denver-based MPP spokesman Mason Tvert. Check out the photos below.

Now, Tvert and company are taking their campaign to an even bigger stage: the Super Bowl. Continue to see five billboards going up near New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, where the big game will take place on Sunday, as well as a petition targeting the NFL.
