Walking down West Cary Street, I saw clothing stores, restaurants, grocery stores and a 26-year-old man playing cello outside a lingerie shop.

University of Richmond alumnus Mason Tvert is one of the leading advocates for legalizing marijuana in Colorado through Amendment 64, which if passed in November, would create the first state system where marijuana would be regulated and taxed like alcohol.
Tvert, a 2004 graduate, is the co-founder of Safer Alternative for Enjoyable Recreation (SAFER), the SAFER Voter Education Fund and has frequently appeared in the news to promote the message that marijuana is safer than alcohol.
Amendment 64 will appear on the November 2012 ballot, he said.
If passed, the amendment would remove all legal penalties for the personal use, possession and limited home-growth of marijuana for adults 21 years of age and older in Colorado.
One of the most recent polls, conducted about two weeks ago by the Denver Post, shows support for the passing of Amendment 64 at 51 percent to 40 percent not in favor of passing.
Most of Tvert's time and energy is spent arguing that marijuana is a safer substance than alcohol, a belief that was formulated during his time at Richmond, he said.
Tvert said in high school he would frequently drink on the weekends without any fear of punishment.
The summer after his high school graduation, Tvert attended a concert from which he had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital, unconscious, to have his stomach pumped for alcohol poisoning, he said.
"I was released from the hospital without any sort of punishment," Tvert said.
With a skateboard tucked under his arm and long, blond locks flowing beneath a flat-brimmed hat embossed with his signature Perfect Gentleman logo, junior Cullen Bonham might stand out as an anomaly on campus.

"It's my legacy."
Bonham was cautious to not overly characterize the nature of his company and described it as more of "a lifestyle," he said -- one represented by the yellow scrawl of the Perfect Gentleman title and accompanied by the caricature of a small chicken.

After years of classes and outside work and a year-long senior thesis class, three University of Richmond senior studio art majors will display their work as part of the senior thesis exhibition.
The artwork of the three seniors, Elizabeth Ygartua, Kellie Morgan and Jon Henry, will be displayed at the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art, located in the Modlin Center for the Arts from April 13 to May 3.
More of their work will be displayed concurrently at the Wilton Companies Gallery at the University of Richmond Downtown, according to a university press release.
Much of the work was produced during the two senior thesis classes, which consisted of a fall class of seven students, followed by the option to apply for entry into the exhibition class for the spring, Henry said.
Morgan said the class, which was taught by a different professor each semester, had been a transformational experience for her and that she had appreciated having two perspectives help her find her voice in her work.
Erling Sjovold, an associate professor of art, taught the class in the fall and said he had wanted to get students started over the summer in order to get them early feedback.
"The art can be experimental or research-based," he said.
