Video: Marijuana smoke shacks at Colorado ski areas freak out Inside Edition

Back in 2012, our William Breathes offered an in-depth tour of smoke shacks -- low-key structures at numerous Colorado ski resorts where particularly kind skiers stop to smoke a little pot before getting back to the slopes. Now, Inside Edition has discovered these venerable attractions, but the hilariously hysterical tone of the report, which employs hidden cameras and focuses on the prospect of carnage and catastrophe, couldn't be more different from Breathes'. Look below to see the crazy video, which, as you may have already discovered, is in auto-play mode.
