Yes, this actually happened.

The iconic Hollywood sign was vandalized on December 31, it was reported.

Witty (haha) trespassers changed the letters to ‘Hollyweed’, and this came shortly after California made recreational marijuana LEGAL!

It would be safe to say, the landmark Hollywood sign  was actually paying tribute to the new marijuana laws in California.

The “Golden” state legalized recreational pot after Proposition 64 passed on 8 November, 2016.

Happy New Year to California, we guess!
