Famed Hollywood Sign Prank’d to Read “Hollyweed”

Year 2017 is already starting on a “High” note, he famed Hollywood sign was vandalized early Sunday morning to read “Hollyweed.”

The alteration comes after California voters approved recreational marijuana in November.

In a New Year’s prank, someone was able to climb up Mount Lee, in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains, and place tarps over the 2 O’s on the sign to make them look like E’s, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department.

The incident was caught on surveillance cameras and the LAPD is investigating the act as a misdemeanor trespassing crime.

The alteration comes after California voters approved Recreational Marijuana. However, the Golden State’s cannabis  businesses are licensed to sell RM (recreational marijuana) until 1 January 2018.

Built in Y 1923, the Hollywood sign was 1st changed to “Hollyweed” on 1 January 1976, when a California State University, Northridge student similarily hung curtains over some of the letters to alter the famed Hollywood sign.

Have a terrific New Year!
