Hi SoCal! Yesterday, cannabis connoisseurs across Southern California celebrated April 20 (aka 420). In honor of this great holy day, we sent photographer Jason Kentaro to The Artist Tree in West Hollywood for the grand opening of their new cannabis lounge to capture the highlights on camera. Enjoy the visuals!
The artist’s tree muse
This clinic/art space hybrid is an original idea by Lauren Fontein.

High quality art
Besides providing pot, The Artist Tree also serves as a showcase for local minority artists.
As part of the 4/20 festivities, The Artist Tree has launched its new cannabis cafe. It is one of the few places in the whole country where patrons can publicly participate in the consumption of cannabis. AT’s goals are to supersede Amsterdam as the next marijuana Mecca.
Kweenz and Greenz
In addition to art and edibles, AT’s new lounge also offers a performance venue for WeHo’s myriad drag queens.
