RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL — A man in Brazil is using his pot-smoking habit to create art.

In his Rio studio, this man lights up and blows marijuana smoke through a stencil onto paper.

The paper absorbs the smoke, turning it into a gold-like print. His pieces take about a week to make and have sold for as much as $2,500. His opening exhibit attracted more than 500people on its opening night.

Pot-smoking is illegal in Brazil, and the studio is just a block from a military police headquarters, but so far he hasn't had any problems with the authorities.
