A video that went viral this week purportedly shows two Colorado Police officers smoking weed in public while on duty on a busy street.

The short video clip was posted on Youtube Wednesday showing an officer in uniform sitting in a marked police vehicle taking a hit from what seems to be a joint, then passing it along to another cop who apparently says ‘Let me get a hit on that thing with you.’

As the second cop starts puffing away, he inhales deeply and says ‘Some good s—‘ as he exhales.

Smoking on the job?: Some have questioned whether the video is a prank and if the men are really police

Although Colorado legalized marijuana use for recreational use in January 2014, smoking weed in public is still illegal. However, as far police use of the drug, department policies treat marijuana the same as alcohol, which neither is allowed for consumption while on duty.

Colorado, law enforcement officials have yet to comment on the video.

Many have questioned whether the video is authentic, and if the men filmed real cops or people dressed in police uniform.
