Watch This: A Magician Makes Cannabis Disappear in Front of a Cop

Messing with the cops is one of those things that I’ll never do for the obvious reasons, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about it every single day of my life. Whenever I’m out and see a police officer, I think about running up to him or her with my Snapchat open and screaming, “Answer quick: Have you ever smoked the marijuana that you confiscated instead of turning it in? Don’t lie!”

But the sad truth is I can’t do that. Instead, I have to live vicariously through people who are brave enough to do such things. People like the kid in this video, who was brave enough to walk up to a cop, show him a bag of cannabis, then do a magic trick to make it disappear while the cop rushed him and demanded he hand over the baggie.

Do you think that’s a real bag of green or not? I keep pausing the part when he pulls it out after the cop lets him walk, and I’m preeeetttyy sure it is. Ballsy, kid. I salute you.
