Woody Harrelson opens cannabis lounge in WeHo

Twenty four years ago, Woody Harrelson was thrown in jail for planting hemp seeds in Kentucky. Today, he welcomed the media, the mayor and and the West Hollywood public into his very own, totally legal cannabis store.

The Woods, located at 8271 Santa Monica Blvd., features a retail dispensary, a delivery outlet and an on-site consumption area, as well as a bar and food service.

“It has everything, but most importantly, it is incredibly beautiful,” Harrelson told LA Weekly about the establishments’ jungle-like garden, koi pond and walking trails.

Harrelson’s partners in the venture include Bill Maher and interior designer Thomas Schoos.

Among its many wares, The Woods will sell organic cannabis grown naturally outdoors.

West Hollywood is being ruined by heterosexuals. Pot is an overwhelmingly heterosexual drug.

“Marijuana related psychosis is the number one cause of emergency room admissions in california”

Source please? I’ve spent 15 minutes googling this and have found nothing that supports this statement. The closest thing was something that stated “emergency room visits for cannabis-induced psychosis went up 54% across the state, from 682 to 1,053, according to state hospital data” but that is a drop in the bucket of the 14.9 million visits to CA ERs in 2019. .

How is it that Faring, touted as West Hollywood’s “home town developer” found it necessary to become embroiled in the cannabis business with CALMA?

Is this part of Horvarth’s manifesto for Supervisor? Really makes me dislike this council more than ever, all of them for allowing so many pot centers.
Can we please put no more dispensaries on the next ballot?

So frustrating for those of us who live East of La Cienega but on streets that are considered the City of Los Angeles. We have NO SAY but we are virtually living in West Hollywood pot hell. These council members know this and that is why they are cramming these shops into this area. I can only imagine what kind of kick backs the city council is receiving for all these licenses. Next BASIX and MARIX will be converted to dispensaries. This is crazy!!!

I don’t even smoke weed, but i’m not really seeing the “hell” you’re talking about. How is this directly affecting you?

The so-called Emerald City problems havent started yet because most of the ingestion lounges haven’t opened up. When this little city starts turning into an international destination for pot tourism, we will all see the problems then. I had a lot of fun in Amsterdam years ago in the area where they had all the pot “cafes.” But I would never have wanted to live in the middle of it. The residents there hated it. We are about to become those residents.

Pot Hell, LOL. If there’s a hell, that would be a pretty good one to be stuck in for eternity…..

Why didn’t the residents have a choice in the decree of West Hollywood becoming a Giant Cannabis Cloud? Sounds like the WMD fable but this is apparently real.

This block will be even less desirable to live near or walk by when Conservatory disappears and turns into another The Artist Tree consumption lounge.

They’re splitting the space into two with Conservatory keeping just the cafe and bar area in order to serve the smokers food. The dining room, outdoor patio, and enclosed “Society Room” will all become a cannabis club. Conservatory as we know it will be gone. But the staff has been instructed to tell the public otherwise…

You can see here that The Artist Tree has been approved for Conservatory’s location at 8289 SMB: https://wehoville.com/2022/03/31/as-new-dispensaries-open-weho-considers-allowing-cannabis-special-events/

So, two businesses within feet of each other, in the middle of a mostly residential area, are going to be pot lounges? This is insane. They’re not even trying to spread them apart. Every single member of this City Council needs to go, and that includes Lauren Meister who likes to pretend like she’s the reasonable one. Is that her in the picture next to woody harrelson?

Looks like Lauren Meister is about to give them A Key to the City or a Proclamation. LOL. Is that Keith Kaplan as well?

The entire CC crew is like inmates running the asylum. This has happened in front of everyone’s eyes.

How is it that no one mentioned a license for the Conservatory. Something funky across from City Hall at Irv’s Burgers no less. 🙄

They tried to hide it by not using Conservatory’s name and instead just using the address. The Artist Tree will be taking over the majority of Conservatory’s space at 8289 SMB. Here is a list of all 40 cannabis licenses, locations, and statuses: https://wehoville.com/2022/03/31/as-new-dispensaries-open-weho-considers-allowing-cannabis-special-events/

Thanks for reminding us. Deceptive dealings by city staff. And they will issue an “educational campaign”🙄.just say no! That will really help! The city staff appears to be high 🙄.

With many more to come, with the current Council’s “Emerald Village” idea.

Wonder how much he had to pay horvath and the other twits for his license. I see she’s in the picture, or does it go by “he” it’s so confusing.
