SYLMAR (CBSLA) — Sylmar is going up in smoke thanks to Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

The hip-hop superstar, whose real name is Louis Mario Freese, attended a grand opening Wednesday for the Dr. Greenthumb Dispensary — the latest cannabis store to open in the Los Angeles area since marijuana became legal in California.

The dispensary is named after a popular Cypress Hill song.

Freese, a long-time San Fernando Valley resident, is part-owner of the dispensary.

The facility will also be the home of B-Real TV — a digital media outlet providing daily news and analysis of cannabis culture.

“We have a lot of history behind us as it relates to music and the pro-legalization movement,” Freese said in a press release. “It’s a blessing to put down roots of our first storefront in our backyard and serving our community with a premium cannabis experience.”
