Colorado -- The pro-marijuana organization behind the referendum that made penalties for pot on the University of Colorado campus no greater than those for alcohol is encouraging suspended running back Ricky Williams to join the Denver Broncos.
Officials with SAFER, or Safer Alternative for Enjoyable Recreation, will unveil a billboard across the street from Invesco Field in Denver at noon tomorrow supporting Williams' notorious use of marijuana and encouraging him to push for a spot on the Broncos.

Williams, who just completed an 18-month suspension from the NFL for violating the league's drug policy for the fourth time, filed for league reinstatement yesterday and is awaiting approval.

The Miami Dolphins runner has played in 12 NFL games since the start of the 2004 season, and his most recent suspension came in April 2006 after he tested positive for marijuana.

Williams remains under contract with Miami, but the team's coach hasn't said whether he wants Williams back.

SAFER executive director Mason Tvert said today that if Williams must find a new squad, he should come to Colorado.

"The National Football League's marijuana policy is just as irrational as our federal government's marijuana policy," Tvert said in a statement. "Authorities are steering adults toward using alcohol and punishing them for making the safer choice to use marijuana instead."

The new billboard across from Invesco reads "Ricky, come to Denver ... Where the people support your SAFER choice."

It pictures the back of a player with dreadlocks wearing a Broncos jersey.

Tvert said pushing football players to use alcohol instead of pot could be dangerous.

"Why on Earth would the NFL steer some of the biggest, strongest and toughest men in America away from marijuana and toward a drug that contributes to violent and aggressive behavior?" Tvert said.

Screw that I want Ricky to come to The Patriots. He Might be good insurance and there might be enough veterans to help him along.

now with Laurence Maroney hurt it might be good insurance, and for all his problems (pot, super sperm) Ricky Williams might be that little Piece to top it off.

Anyone have any thoughts?
