2 Definitions
  1. The Hollywood sign has been changed to "Hollyweed" on a few occasions, once in the '70s after legislation that would decriminalize marijuana, as well as for a scene in a movie. Since then marijuana culture has defined LA through the prevalence of medical marijuana. People have tried to profit from the Hollyweed name by selling t-shirts with the silly moniker.

  2. California also voted yes on prop 215 in 1996 that legalized medical use of marijuana. Now, in November of 2010, a new state referendum looks to legalize weed for personal recreational use, which would make California the first state to do so. Instead of arguing against the alleged harm marijuana can do or its negative social stigma, this new charge is making tax revenue the main basis for its platform. Hollyweed (and the whole state) is in a fiscal crisis. Two kinds of green with a single vote! Posted by: Anonymous on Mar 29, 2010 (0) (0)
