Washington (KTNV) -- A video of a police officer appearing to be smoking marijuana is making its rounds on the Internet.

The man on the video in uniform has a badge and a patch for the Washington State Patrol. He is caught on camera lighting a two pound joint at a festival in Washington where marijuana is legal.

There is only one problem with this video and that is it was found to be a fake.

If you look closely at his name tag in the video it reads, "Sergeant B. Smiley."

The man is said to be a marijuana activist, and his uniform isn't legal.

He is not being charged with impersonating an officer since he didn't try to act like one.
