Watch: This Artist 'Paints' With Marijuana Smoke

For some people, the plumes of smoke rolling off a joint are a nuisance. But for Brazillian artist Fernando de la Rocque, marijuana smoke is a creative medium. Using handmade stencils of cultural, political and religious figures, de la Rocque "paints" with cannabis smoke by blowing puffs onto a special type of paper that absorbs tokes.

Joints are his preferred "paintbrush" for crafting cannabis portraits, which usually take a week of smoking five joints per day to finish.

"You could say I'm taking advantage of an 'ink' that's just being tossed into the air," de la Rocque told the alt news website Newsivity, who also filmed him at work. Check out this clip of de la Rocque honing his craft. Maybe you'll get inspired to dip a paintbrush into your bong and experiment with watercoloring.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
