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

Video below.
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.

Inside Edition... It's "The Enquirer" for scandal-obsessed old white rural people with cable.

Those shacks are know by the ski resort operators and are on federal land. I am going to  LMAO when they start pulling leases and giving them to the people on the in. If they don't we know who the new checks on the ski resort balance sheets are going to, get ready for higher lift ticket prices.  Just more abuse of the wonderful A64 that everyone wanted so bad.

Pretty sure the guys at the end were paid off by the media!! Really not that stupid! That's what alcohol does to riders not weed!

NEws Flash, people legally get drunk as hell on the mountain. Which is far more dangerous. I've seen people become paraplegics snowboarding on alcohol.

Because of this video Inside Edition so awesomely fucking made a memorial was blown up and now all that's left is a pile of nails and trash on our beautiful mountain. All this caused was destruction, we're still going to smoke and ride.

Classic. I wish I could get my screen shot to work. Slew of incoming comments from people who don't appreciate epic sarcasm and also only read the comment you posted with the article.

I went to Leo's at Breck last Friday and it was blown to pieces :( I guess it's pretty easy for the U.S. Forest Service to find them when people post their GPS coordinates online..

@JimTom you are not a nice guy it seams... 
honestly the media going for drama and showing on national news will cause anything or anyone problems when it is a heated subjects that really is not a big issue and takes away from the the real issues or good news that should be in the news. 

AKA cool your jets sir.
