In a move that pulverizes the college kid stereotype, students at the University of Missouri - Columbia will be rallying today for marijuana. Not for its legalization, per se. But to make the argument that pot is safer than drinking.

There were similar rallies organized last week throughout the rest of the U.S. by a group aptly named SAFER - Safer Alternative to Enjoyable Recreation. But the stoners at Mizzou decided to wait until today to hold their rally, because everybody was on spring break, dude.
