On Jan. 1, 1976, the vaunted Hollywood sign was altered to read “Hollyweed” to celebrate loosened marijuana laws in the state of California.
An official told CBS Los Angeles that somebody climbed the mountain around midnight Sunday and threw two tarps over the O’s to make them look like E’s. Similarly, Danny Finegood, a Cal State Northridge art major, used curtains to pull off the same effect in 1976.
The incident is being investigated as a misdemeanor trespassing, and apparently there is security video of the incident.
For some, the vandalism meant that 2017 was already off to a better start than 2016.
Waking up to see the Hollywood sign changed to “Hollyweed” is a great start to my new year 😂
