Frustrated by a lack of action on marijuana legalization, two Vermont lawmakers are trying a new tack: If we can't have our pot, you can't have your booze.

Pearson says they don't actually support the bill, but are trying to make a point that alcohol actually causes more social problems - including crimes of violence and overdose deaths - than marijuana does.
