3 Former Cops Smoke Weed In Honor Of 420, Talk About Legalization, Gateway Drugs, & Their Sex Lives — VIDEO

As marijuana slowly but surely gains cautious acceptance across the country, authorities are appearing to finally understand that smoking weed is not really the be-all-end-all that many have thought it was for decades. This year, the great people at Cut Video put together a video of ex-cops smoking weed in honor of 420, the unofficial holiday for stoners everywhere, for our enjoyment — and it's pretty incredible.

Brought to you by the same people who made that video of grandmothers smoking weed for the first time, this clip (ha ha, get it?) features three former police officers in Washington state — where the recreational use of marijuana is legal — smoking not for the first time, but perhaps the first time in a long time. The video includes sobriety tests, a bong, joints, a game of "Who Am I?" and some serious talk about marijuana legalization.

It's great not only because these guys were former cops, but also because watching non-stoners get stoned can be really funny, sometimes even profound. Here are some of their best quotes, ranging from talking about the first time they smoked, what their opinions are as former police officers, and just about being high in general.
