Pints vs. pot: New billboard says marijuana safer than alcohol
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, March, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
Organizers putting up a provocative new billboard said the goal is to encourage drinkers to compare the effects of pot to the pint they're about to drink.
The Marijuana Policy Project is hosting a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday in front of their new billboard at Southwest 13th and Alder Street in Portland.
The sign features a pint of beer, a glass of wine and a marijuana leaf. The words above each item, in order, say "Beer," "Wine" and "Safer."
The organization said the goal of the billboard is to highlight the "relative safety" of marijuana compared to alcohol, while also making a statement to the people who will be drinking at upcoming beer and wine festivals.
"Our goal is to make this year's beer and wine festivals as educational as they are enjoyable," said Roy Kaufmann, Oregon representative of the Marijuana Policy Project. "We simply want attendees who are drinking to think about the fact that marijuana is objectively less harmful than the pint of beer or glass of wine they have in their hands."

Indiana crime bill could get tougher on marijuana
Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The proposed overhaul of Indiana's criminal sentencing laws could get tougher penalties for marijuana possession and dealing after Gov. Mike Pence said he wanted it stricter on low-level drug offenders.
A state Senate committee is expected to vote Thursday on increasing the felony and misdemeanor levels of the marijuana crimes.
That is part of a broad plan that aims to direct more people convicted of low-level felonies to work release and other local programs rather than sending them to prison. It also would require those convicted of the most serious crimes to spend more time in prison.
Pence told reporters last week that he believed the bill should send a message that the state is tough on drug dealers.
The House approved the bill by a wide margin last month.
