With a few tarps, the iconic Hollywood sign has was altered to read: Hollyweed. Surveillance video captured the alleged trespasser at the sign around 3 a.m.. It took about an hour and a half to hang the white and black tarps that changed the O’s into E’s. Meaning they were finishing up around 4:20. Nice.
The prank follows the passing of Proposition 64, which legalizes the use of recreational marijuana beginning in 2018. This isn’t the first time the sign has been a visual for pro-marijuana legislation. It was similarly altered in 1976 to acknowledge a different marijuana decriminalization law.
