The 2014 Super Bowl may end up going down in history as a game that made many cannabis consumers happy.
That's because the only two states to allow the use of recreational marijuana, also have teams playing in the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl matchup between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks even has the Colorado and Washington NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) organizations engaged in a friendly wager.
Colorado NORML posted the following on its website:
"Bud Bowl. Weed Bowl. Fill a Bowl. Stoner Bowl. Super Stupor Bowl. Whatever you call it, the teams from Denver and Seattle are in it to win it! And so are cannabis consumers! The annual Super Bowl is always a great time for a few friendly wagers, and cannabis consumers are no exception. Happy to uphold this proud tradition, Colorado NORML and Washington NORML have made a little side bet on this historic game:
If the Denver Broncos win, WA NORML has agreed to dress in Bronco colors of blue and orange and sing Karaoke-style Colorado's (second) official state song "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver.
If the Seattle Seahawks win, CO NORML will do the same, but in Seahawk blue and green and singing “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix, a native son of Seattle.
A video of the performance must be posted on the respective state chapter's web site, Facebook page and on YouTube for a minimum of one week, with an acknowledgment that the winning team's state is simply awesome."
The matchup also has some cannabis consumers publishing marijuana-infused Super Bowl snack recipes. In addition to the NORML wager and the pot snacks, the Super Bowl has also become the topic of plenty of marijuana-related jokes on social media, some even include legendary pot-smokers Cheech and Chong.
