Snowboarding Stoned

YOU MUST BE THIS HIGH TO RIDE

Colorado’s new marijuana laws are proving controversial, who’d of thought?

Apparently, since now it’s legal to buy weed from your local store (and only since then surely?) snowboarders have been riding stoned.

Stop. Press. You mean Danny Kass has to start being more careful about which plants he chooses to adorn his gloves with? This is going to shake the world of snowboarding to it’s core!

We get to see some hidden camera footage of people smoking weed, inside a smoking shack! Plus, Pulitzer standard interviews with some baked riders with groundbreaking insight such as:

I was high this morning when I got here. I was high last night when I went to bed.

Seriously though, this video features a lot of hysteria mostly centered around two guys gently bumping into each other on the way down a piste, way less gnarly than the Olympic men’s boardercross races earlier this week.

Or come to think of it, any European piste in peak season. Honestly, I’d rather take my chances against Cheech and Chong here than the hoards of wankers tomahawking down the mountain after the Folie Douce starts kicking them out.

Anyway, thanks Inside Edition and Vail Resorts, if nothing else you did remind us of this classic bit by Bill Hicks:
