VIDEO: Rare 'Marijuana Sasquatch' Shows Up for Massachusetts Snowstorm

The darnedest things have been known to happen during Massachusetts snowstorms, but certainly nothing like this: During a live report from a local TV station meteorologist, a previously unknown creature made an unscripted appearance.

That's right, Marijuana Sasquatch, a creature so reclusive it has never been spotted in the wintry wild before, came out to frolic right in the middle of WWLP meteorologist Jennifer Paglieli's report on Thursday's storm from Springfield.

Sasquatch may have been lured from pot-friendly Canadian climes by recent political events. Last November, Massachusetts voters approved marijuana legalization, with pot being legal to possess and grow as of December 14. But since Marijuana Sasquatch made no comments for the record, his (or her?) motives remain hazy.
