The world famous ‘Hollywood’ sign which stands tall upon Mt. Lee has been amended in a New Years’ prank, reading ‘Hollyweed’ on January 1st 2017.
While California state businesses aren’t legally allowed to sell recreational marijuana until January 2018, a group of handy vandals have taken it upon themselves to show their excitement for the coming legislation.
It’s never been a secret that California residents are fans of the sticky icky. They’ve long remained one of the most progressive US states in terms of medicinal marijuana legislation, and a recent vote has seen that policy extend into recreational territory.
