Marijuana advocates note alcohol’s violence link

DENVER — College students are headed to the Colorado Capitol to make an unusual argument in favor of marijuana legalization. This group says pot use could reduce alcohol-related sexual violence.

The argument isn’t a new one. Several Colorado college pot groups have pushed unsuccessfully for campuses not to punish students more harshly for pot than for underage alcohol possession. Advocates say that alcohol is more closely linked to sexual assaults.

That message is coming to the state Capitol today from a group of women marking Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Alcohol Awareness Month.
