Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Send your story tips to the author, Michael Roberts.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
