Do you remember that video from last year of the magician hiding weed from a cop? Pulling a fast one on the law might actually be a good skill to have while we wait for our state legislatures to come around to legalization, so I started contacting some magicians.
The world of magic is a difficult one to infiltrate, a fact that was made apparent during our shockingly long search for a wizard who would help us. They either felt uncomfortable with the subject matter or refused on the basis that "it would be a big conflict regarding the magic community." Translation: the Magician's Code. Yup, it's real.
Finally we found Rich Ferguson, a master of prestidigitation who didn't think that talking to us was betraying the trust of his peers and learned exactly what to do if confronted green-handed by a cop. Just remember, these aren't tricks—they're illusions, Michael!
