Pot advocate's amended suit against Broncos claims false statements against food product

Last month, we told you about a lawsuit filed against Broncos owner Pat Bowlen after a vehicle was twice ejected from a Mile High Stadium parking lot because it was emblazoned with the logo of Cannabis University.

Since then, the Colorado Civil Rights Division has informed the Broncos about the complaint, and an amended version of the suit adds a new argument. It claims the eviction violates state law against defaming Colorado food products.
