Picture of the Day: Welcome to Hollyweed
To celebrate the official legalization of marijuana in California, artist Zach Fernandez—who goes by the moniker Jesushands—made some temporary modifications to the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles.

This isn’t the first time the sign has been ‘modified’. Betsy Isroelit with the Hollywood Sign Trust told CNN that the last time the sign was vandalized to read “Hollyweed” was in 1976.
