"A suburb only for the most discriminating of marihuana smokers, located just two miles from the Silver Spring stoplight." - Weedmoor advertising brochure, ca. 1936
The twelve-year-old in me burst out laughing when I passed this sign at Route 29 and Woodmoor Circle yesterday evening. What can I say? I enjoy puns.
Nonetheless, it's a shame that this particular sign has been defaced. I wonder how hard it'll be to fix, or why the vandals couldn't have gone after a less attractive (though less punny) sign, this one for the ill-defined "South Manor Neighborhood" off New Hampshire Avenue in the District.
