"The iconic “Hollywood” sign got a New Year’s Day makeover from an unknown vandal who used a black tarp to transform the letters into a message celebrating marijuana. Cops have surveillance video of the suspect, TMZ reported. The vandal, dressed in all black, could face a misdemeanor trespassing charge, said Sgt. Robert Payan. The person scaled a protective fence surrounding the sign and then clambered up each giant letter to drape the coverings, Payan said.
California in November passed a measure legalizing marijuana for recreational use."
And so it is. And so it will be. Hollywood? No, Hollyweed. Maybe they should leave the sign that way seeing as smoking pot for recreation is now legal in California - and Hollywood. Unfortunately, smoking a joint - for any reason - is still stinky.
